Return of Faberge Eggs to Russia

Client

A major global company engaged in art auctions and private sales.

Issue

The client sold several of the world-renowned and extremely valuable Faberge Eggs to a customer in Russia. The transportation of highly valuable goods into Russia carried a substantial risk of loss because of the country’s volatile post-Cold War environment.

Solutions

Express Trade Capital meticulously planned and oversaw every aspect of the transportation process, including customs clearance, shipping formalities, and documentation. We also arranged for an armored caravan to protect the goods as they were transported from the client’s warehouse to an awaiting airplane, upon which armed guards watched the goods until they reached their final destination without loss or delay and with no hassle to the client and its customer.
