Freight Facts

Handling receipt of your shipment requires careful planning. Please review this page for a better understanding of shipping options and your responsibilities regarding acceptance of your order. 

All freight (including FREE Economy Shipping) is based on delivery to accessible liquor stores, supermarkets, convenience stores and other commercial addresses. If your business has limited access* or if you request shipment to a residential address, we will contact you regarding additional shipping fees charged by the freight company. 

Freight is calculated based on 3 criteria:
• Freight class of items in your order.
• Total weight of your order.
• Distance from warehouse to your location.

If your shipment weighs more than 8,000 lbs. it will be transported by itself.

If your shipment weighs less than 8,000 lbs. it will be transported with other partial loads (LTL Shipping) via a common carrier freight company.
