The fine art of shipping and protecting a masterpiece

Case study: Floating World Gallery

Shipping priceless, seven-foot-high Japanese ceramic sculptures around the world leaves no margin for error in packing and transportation. Chicago’s Floating World Gallery is one of the world’s leading purveyors of traditional and contemporary Japanese art, sourcing one-of-a-kind pieces from all over the globe. But finding and selling unique artifacts is one thing. Shipping and protecting them is another art form altogether. One tiny chip, scratch, dent or tear can compromise the value of a timeless piece. That’s why Floating World Gallery counts on UPS Capital to protect their investments.
