Rerouting a Package

We have a feature with the ability to reroute your UPS consumer packages via our WineDirect Fulfillment Portal. To reroute/redirect your consumer packages, the carrier must ship via UPS.  When electing to reroute a shipment, it’s important to note the “Delivery Status” of that shipment.  

Guidelines and processes:

  • Carrier pass through fees plus the difference in carrier costs (between old and new address) will be incurred by the winery.
  • Packages which have been “delivered” are not eligible for reroute.
  • “In transit” packages are eligible for reroute.
  • Once the redirect is submitted, there will be a delay of one business day as the request must reach the driver/hub to apply the changes.
  • Due to varying state laws, the reroute address must be for the same state that the order was originally going to.

Winery benefits and processes vary, depending on which of our services are in place:

  • WineDirect Fulfillment Only: The redirect API will allow a winery employee to reroute packages via the Fulfillment portal.
  • WineDirect Fulfillment + Ecommerce: When a winery uses both our fulfillment and Ecommerce services, the winery’s customer will be able to login to their Ecommerce account and make the necessary changes. The package reroute option is only available to WineDirect Fulfillment Customers who have signed up for the Ecommerce Plus package. Read more about the Ecommerce reroute details >> HERE

HOW TO PROCEED WITH REROUTING VIA THE FULFILLMENT PORTAL:

  • Go to the Shipments page on the Fulfillment Portal to search for the order using the quick search field or by using the search filters. 
  • After submitting "Go", your results will appear in the table below.
  • Selecting the arrow   icon, located on the left of the order number, will prompt a small window to appear to submit your new address information.

  • Once the pop-up screen appears, use the form from the popup window to enter the details of the new delivery address. 

Please note that each line has a character limitation as outlined below:

Name: 30 characters (including spaces)
Company Name: 30 characters (including spaces)
Address Line 1: 30 characters (including spaces)
Address Line 2: 8 characters (including spaces)
Address Line 3: 3 characters (typically used for Floor #s)
Telephone: 10 characters (should be a phone number at the new address)

Note:  The state to which the shipment is being delivered cannot be change for compliance  reasons.

  • When complete, click on “Submit Request", this will submit your request for WineDirect approval.

PLEASE NOTE:  IF YOU HAVE AN ORDER THAT CONTAINS MULTIPLE PACKAGES/TRACKING NUMBERS AND THEY ALL NEED TO BE REROUTED, BE SURE TO MAKE CHANGES TO REROUTE FOR EACH CORRESPONDING ORDER.

If the customer reschedules a package using the UPS My Choice website, there is no charge. This $5 fee is waived for WineDirect Fulfillment Customers.  While reschedules are permitted, redirects cannot be entered via My Choice.  They can only be made in WineDirect Ecommerce or in the WineDirect Fulfillment Portal. Read more details about UPS My Choice.
