Your logistics questions answered
All wine sold on Liv-ex passes through our London warehouse so that we can confirm the trade and check the wine if necessary.
To get it there, you can either send it directly to London or to one of our hubs in Bordeaux, Belgium or Hong Kong. We manage onward travel.
Alternatively, we operate a collection service across Europe. We currently collect from France, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy and Denmark. Shipments are temperature-controlled when needed to ensure that the stock arrives in good condition.
Liv-ex offers weekly temperature-controlled air freight to your desired address in Hong Kong. It is charged at a competitive per-case fee.
We operate monthly temperature-controlled deliveries to Beaune (France), which many of our clients find convenient for easy onward transportation to North America.
If you have purchased wine under the SIB contract, it will be available in your Liv-ex account within 30 days, but often much sooner. Some wine is offered as available now, which means it is already in the warehouse and is instantly available. Where delivery times vary from this, the wine is offered as ‘Special’ and the time frame is specified.
Onward delivery times depend on your location and preferred shipping method.
All trades are settled by Liv-ex using our logistics network. We offer competitive flat rate fees depending on your location to cover logistics and administrative costs.
