The simplest way to ship wine.
Tight shipping windows due to weather holds. Crowded warehouse floors with purchases ready to ship, but can’t because of the weather. Zone skipping and other cold chain methods with ‘mostly’ temperature control that still need styrofoam or ice packs, adding to your or your customers shipping cost. In short, you or your customers are paying significant amounts on shipping costs via a common carrier that isn’t even utilizing methods to ship via temperature controlled from door-to-door. Sound familiar? If you answered yes, you’re in the majority.
Now imagine this: Year-round shipping. temperature-controlled shipments that no longer require styrofoam, ice packs or bulky pulp-filled boxes–an eco-friendly solution. Unprecedented temperature-controlled coverage map, serving the largest wine consuming markets across the U.S. Shipping costs at a fraction of recommended expedited common carrier service. Too good to be true? Not anymore.
