Katoen Natie has been a leading global player in logistics since 1854, operating in more than 30 countries with a workforce exceeding 16,000 employees.
The company also has an abiding passion for fine art and patrimony. The combination of 170 years of logistics knowledge and a passion for art, resulted in Katoen Natie Business Unit Art.
In Belgium, the group constructed over +250,000 sqft of hyper-secure, climatized bonded warehouses where we store international collections of galleries, museums, company & private collections, artist estates and auction houses.
Objects stored at our bonded facilities can leave the warehouses and remain bonded while travelling the EU freely. This means that no import duties or VAT apply, even after Brexit. The other way around, objects with a free circulation status preserve this status inside the EU.
Our facilities are unique: for example, our ecological depot is +85,000 sqft, completely airtight, heavily isolated & secured, has a lowered oxygen level (14% I/O 21%) making it fire-proof, is powered by green energy and has a museum standard climat for art storage… while at a lower price tag. We’re making art storage ecological and affordable.
We are also a one-stop-shop, offering viewing/expo/sales rooms, transport, art handling & installation, customs, fair assistance, empty crate storage, collection management, …
