Guidance for Exporting Alcohol

The United States and its territories have unique permitting and regulatory requirements for the transportation of alcoholic beverages. DHL Express maintains required permits in states we are approved to transport shipments.

Exports can only be picked up from customers that are licensed producers or wholesalers and have been approved by DHL to ship.

Request Approval to Ship
Licensed producers or wholesalers residing in the DHL Permitted States that would like to export alcoholic beverages must submit documentation for review and approval to ship.
