FedEx approved to ship wine to New York

Sovos | February 10, 2006

The State of New York Division of Alcoholic Beverage yesterday officially approved FedEx to make wine shipments directly to New York consumers. Carriers approved to ship to New York are required to “capture and maintain specific information, including a signature and the New York Out-of-State Direct Shipper�s license
number of out-of-state wineries.”
Both FedEx and UPS, who received approval in December, struggled with the approval process in New York.
