The TBS TRAMO Division stems from the combined expertise of Tramo and The British Shop, a leader in the field of transport of works of art and antiques.

Every day, TBS Tramo handles and moves works of art of great value in total safety and with the highest level of efficiency, thanks to the high specialisation and the ubiquity of its network that ensures a worldwide coverage.

Attention to detail, advanced technology, innovative technicalities for special packaging designed specifically for each type of artwork, accuracy, punctuality and the utmost care across the whole chain of transport, from the moment we take charge of the works to delivery at destination: these are the hallmarks that make TBS TRAMO the best player in the field of logistics in the art world.

How it happened:

The new business, which launched in September 2016, is the first partnership between the two companies and has created a new and exciting specialist shipping company based in New York.

Simon Williams, Director of The British Shop, moved to New York to spearhead the new company and is thrilled at the new venture.  “The partnership is a really inspiring opportunity” says Simon, “as soon as we sat down with Tramo, we realised the ambitions of the two companies were identical, and we both look forward to growing a new shipping entity for the New York market.”

Malcolm Disson continues to run The British Shop from the London Headquarters and is also enjoying the challenge.  “We had been planning this for some time” says Malcolm, “we have invested in additional staff here in London to enhance the service we provide for our clients and to cover Simons relocation,” Malcolm goes on to add, “to be involved with Tramo will provide lots of opportunities for us in the future and we are all very enthusiastic about this new chapter in our history.”
