2021 Rate Cards Coming Soon!
It's the time of year when our carriers announce their annual increase in shipping charges, which will go up by an average of 4.9%. As a result, WineDirect will also adjust shipping rates. The 2021 rate cards will be distributed throughout the month of January. Please contact your Account Manager with any questions.
With ecommerce and shipping demand on the rise, we are continuously looking for ways to increase efficiency and reduce transportation costs. That's why we operate multiple fulfillment centers enabling us to ship via ground to 90% of the US within 1-2 days, and why we offset 100% of carbon emissions from your DTC shipments.
We truly value your partnership and wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.
Increased Order Processing Times
As a result of more consumers shopping online in 2020 than ever before, we - like all other retailers and shippers - still handling record-breaking volume. We're getting your shipments out the door as fast as we can, and as of now, that means there is potential for an additional 1-2 days for all order processing.
We are committed to protecting the well-being of our team while working around the clock to ship your wine as fast as possible.
Please note that these additional processing times are in addition to known carrier delays.
