About Racine Berkow
RBA was founded in 1987 as a global freight forwarder and licensed customs broker specializing in fine arts, antiques, and museum exhibitions. RBA provides museum-quality fine art transport and handling services for museums, galleries, institutions and the discerning collector.
Fine art transport
The art that is shipped is sometimes worth millions of dollars and can possibly be irreplaceable. But the company had no sure way of knowing the security of its shipments until they were finally delivered to customers. And for new customers, choosing RBA seemed no different than choosing a similar company.
The AT&T Cargo View devices give RBA all the information it needs to know its shipments are taken care of in the delivery process. By packing the devices with each piece of art, the company can monitor the condition of the pieces in real time. And that provides a relief for the company, as well as its customers.
