UPS is expanding its ability to ship alcohol, wine and beer to consumers around the world using the UPS Express or standard shipping services.
It 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 palletised and non-palletised, 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 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 centres.
“Our priority is to ensure that our customers, whether they are consumers, small producers, or expert wine shop managers, can get their wine where and when they want and with the assurance that their shipment is guaranteed by the quality of UPS’s service,” said Nando Cesarone, President, UPS Europe.
