Alcohol Fees

Alcohol Fees

The safety and security of alcoholic beverages fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), while the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) oversees compliance with Federal alcohol permitting, labeling, and marketing regulations to safeguard consumers.

Deftship strictly adheres to both FDA and TTB guidelines, as well as all applicable state and local laws. We have established standardized procedures to ensure the secure transportation of alcoholic beverage shipments.
