Wine O’ Clock works closely with our Importers to optimize orders and logistics and to maximize shipment cost savings. In many cases, we have calculated shipment cost savings of up to 30% by: Optimizing any single order in terms of maximum pallet and container loading EX: when requested, we can load a single pallet 80*120 with 70*12 cases (considering standard bordeaux bottles) as opposed to many producers normal load of 56*12 cases EX: when requested, a single container can be loaded respecting the maximum legal volume or the maximum weight.
Ocean freight costs are not the only shipment expenses. Shipment from cellars to departing ports can add significant costs to the overall shipment expense. Wine O’ Clock normally offers the FOB solution when a certain volume of wine is ordered from a single producer. If smaller volumes are ordered, Wine o’clock would attempt to build pallets collecting wines from different producers in the property warehouse.
