UPS expanding alcohol shipping capability

UPS has reported that it is expanding its ability to ship alcohol, wine and beer around the world. Using one of the UPS Express or Standard shipping services, wine connoisseurs can have their favourite cases of wine shipped directly from the vineyards to their home.

UPS provides a direct to consumer wine shipping export service from select countries in the European Union to China, South Korea and Japan, and now also to Canada, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, India, Macau, South Africa, Switzerland, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. The business to consumer service adds to the already existing business to business shipping service, both palletized and non-palletized, which has global coverage.

Consumers shipping within the European Union can also take advantage of UPS’s wine shipping services.

For all destinations, UPS provides certified and safe packaging specifically designed for the transport of wine bottles (up to 12 bottles per box for still wines and up to 6 bottles for sparkling wines) that can be ordered through UPS call centers.

Customers shipping from France and Italy can also use the Customized Declared Value for Wine program. Offered by UPS Capital, customers using pre-approved packaging can count on bundled shipping and protection up to €500. If the shipment is valued higher, customers can purchase additional protection up to the full retail cost.
