Shipping Paintings Overseas
“While English is an international language, the Art language is the universal one.” - Sabina Hassan. Painting is one of the many forms of expressing emotions and exports of artworks have been increasing rapidly. In 9th place in the world, Singapore exported US$272.6 million worth of paintings and drawings overseas in 2019. (worldstopexports.com, 2021)
For businesses that are shipping art overseas, it is recommended to ship via air shipment. The main reason why shipping by air is more suitable is that artworks require attention and care as they are fragile. In addition, delivery via air would be significantly faster than sea shipment. It is possible that items can be delivered within 24 hours when shipping by air. However, sea shipments can take up to 18 weeks. This long timeline can be a headache to some businesses as shipping paintings internationally can be time-sensitive.
For individuals or businesses who are interested in sending artwork overseas, Justship is the courier for you. We have shipped countless artworks worldwide. We are using FedEx International Priority(Air) which can deliver to your destination within 2-5 business days, excluding customs delays.
