Arta is pleased to launch a strategic partnership with CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy. CODAworx connects members of the industry, matching creative talent with creative opportunities and providing digital tools that streamline the commission workflow process.
Arta will serve as the preferred shipping partner for CODAworx members, which include artists and creative teams, architects, design and art professionals, and the expanded universe of companies that provide services and products for commission projects. Arta's services will be offered as part of the expanding CODAworx Marketplace.
CODAworx members will be able to rely on Arta's technology platform and team of logistics experts to secure, compare, and accept competitive quotes for shipping, packing, installing, and other required specialized services for artwork that is large and requires sensitive handling. Members will also have a dedicated account manager to respond to inquiries and provide customized quotes and logistics options for these highly complex projects.
Surveys of CODAworx members have consistently revealed that shipping/logistics is a serious pain point for artists, fabricators, and suppliers of large-scaled artworks. It is also an expensive piece of the commission, often costing between 10%-18% of the total price of creating site-specific works of art. As a result, last year CODAworx began the search for a partner that could bring efficiencies and cost savings to its members. Arta is thrilled to have be chosen as the preferred partner, given our extensive global network of 350+ specialized logistics providers and ability to secure competitive rates for our users.
We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with CODAworx, and creating shipping efficiencies and cost savings to their members.
