How Can I Ship a Case of Wine?

Wine shipping in the United States can be approved only through a legal process between your state's Alcoholic Beverage Control and the United Parcel Service (UPS). Shipments containing alcohol substances must undergo inspection and approval from UPS before it is transported to approved designated states only. According to UPS online, shipments may only be transported from licensed shippers to consumers as a direct shipment, from licensed shippers to licensed receivers as licensed consignees, and from licensed wineries to on-site purchasers as an on-site purchase agreement.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Things you need

Import and export alcohol license

Instructions

1 Obtain a wine import and export license. Contact your state's local office of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Fill out an application in person. All parties involved in the shipping of wine cases must be present. Meet with a department adviser so you can review all pertinent laws, rules, and regulations of shipping wine.

2 Sign the UPS contractual service agreement. Enter the UPS Agreement or the UPS Wine Industry Fulfillment House Agreement for approved wine shippers. Understand that UPS will not accept any shipments from shippers who have not signed and entered the agreement.

3 Process the wine shipment with a UPS-compatible shipping company like WorldShip or any approved third-party vendor system before proceeding to ship a case of wine.

4 Meet UPS packaging requirements. Invest in moulded Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam, folded corrugated trays or moulded fibre trays so the bottles will be secure into the centre of the package. Sturdy outer boxes are required.

5 Request that a UPS Delivery Confirmation Adult Signature be sent with the wine package. Label the package to its origin or destination approved state. The wine case packaging will be in violation of UPS terms and agreement and will not be shipped without proper labelling or the request for a confirmation signature.

Tips and warnings

Do not attempt to ship wine cases without obtaining a required alcohol license through your state's Alcoholic Beverage Control. It is illegal.

Note that the United States Postal Service (USPS) and Federal Express (FedEx) are prohibited from shipping alcoholic beverages within the U.S. and abroad.
