Our Story

Have you ever done something and thought, “This should be a lot easier?” That was exactly what ARTA founder Adam Fields realized while overseeing operations and logistics for Artspace.com, a marketplace for contemporary art. The logistics industry for fine art was still operating largely on pen and paper, and an unnecessary amount of time, money, and resources were focused on post-sale fulfillment for both online and offline sellers.

Inspired by the ancient Greek city Arta, known as a hub for transportation, ARTA launched in 2015 with the goal of building technology that streamlined fine art shipping and made both seller and supplier operations more efficient.

After a few years, it became apparent that there was a similar need for ARTA to ship other types of goods as well: furniture, antiques, jewelry, wine, cars… any item requiring extra care or specialized handling. Today, ARTA’s powerful technology is accessible from an API and online platform.
