If you’re using Approved as your 3PL partner for every step of the way (starting with the initial packing at your point of origin to offloading, storing, and/or distribution at your final destination), you need not worry about a thing: we will take all necessary measures.
While over-the-road freight services can take many measures to secure cargo in containers or on pallets, with wine freight and similar fragile, costly cargo, keeping it truly secure starts at the “bottle level.”
Approved has the experience and expertise in shipping wine and spirits required to help ensure that every pallet, every case, every single bottle arrives intact.
Liquor logistics and the law(s)
Moving wine and spirits across the US or from country to country is both literally a delicate job (i.e., the aforementioned packing) and figuratively a delicate job. There are more laws than we can possibly list on this website, and they change from stateline to stateline, as well as from nation to nation.
In some cases, there are limitations in how far a truck driver transporting alcohol freight may venture from an interstate highway. Go too far, and cargo can be impounded. But with Approved’s advanced transportation management and planning capabilities, we can always make sure that your freight is moving forward and doing so while remaining in complete compliance with the law.
Choosing the right 3PL partner for shipping wine and spirits means choosing a partner that knows how to navigate both the roads and the laws. Approved has experience with both, and much more.
