Convelio is a licensed freight forwarding startup evolving at the intersection of Tech, Logistics and the Art World. The startup specialises in the global shipping of high-end goods: paintings, sculptures, basically any valuable or bulky merchandise.
Convelio developed its own proprietary algorithm to offer competitive real-time shipping quotes and an end-to-end logistics service to the art market. Their mission is to become a tech-driven company in a traditional industry, and therefore make the shipping of bulky and valuable items as easy as possible for any business across the world by providing an online and seamless experience. They currently serve a wide range of customers from art galleries, antique dealers, auction houses, online platforms to interior designers.
With 45+ colleagues scattered across Paris & London and soon New York, Convelio has a strong start-up & international culture. They thrive in solving complex logistics issues for their clients, enabling both sellers and buyers in the art market. They are backed by proven technology, prominent VC’s, and boast a global network and the resources (1.85M€ seed round of funding in July 2018 & 9M€ Series A in January 2020) to seize the market opportunity.
