Hurricane and Fire Seasons are upon us, don't forget to configure your Weather Holds to hold back orders from shipping to affected areas.
As we head into one of the toughest times of the year, in regards to weather, we highly recommend setting up Weather Holds. Weather Holds will assist in holding back orders to any of the states you decide to configure.
WineDirect will only ship when you decide or when the Weather Hold expires.
If you decide to release 50+ orders from Weather Hold or a Weather Hold with 50+ orders is about to expire, please reach out to your assigned Account Manager to plan and schedule.

Expected Carrier Delays
Carriers are experiencing delays and we're anticipating these delays to continue as we head into our peak season.
We're sorry to inform you that carriers have been experiencing delays in key order scans, such as the initial possession scan after shipment, and/or arrival scans at the destination hubs. Regrettably, this also includes delivery delays across the board. Unfortunately, the impact is highly dependent on the hub the order is destined to.
Please rest assured that WineDirect is doing their best to keep up with the unprecedented order volumes we've seen since March 2020 and keeping our promise to ship on time. If we have any order shipment delays, we'll be sure to keep you informed.
For any questions and/or concerns, our Client Success Team is on standby to assist.
