Transporting alcoholic beverages differs from transporting other goods. According to legislation, both the carrier and the recipient must possess licenses for the delivery and sale of these goods. Alcohol transportation is regulated by specific rules, which we will discuss in this article.

Classification of alcohol cargo

Alcoholic beverages are classified as hazardous cargo for several reasons:

  • Flammability: alcohol is easily flammable.
  • Vapour explosion hazard: ethanol vapours can be explosive and irritating to mucous membranes.
  • High carbon dioxide pressure: carbonated drinks may have high pressure.

Alcohol containing 24-70% ethyl alcohol is exempt from ADR rules. Drinks containing over 70% alcohol are subject to restrictions: containers should not exceed 5 liters, and gross mass should not exceed 30 kg.

Rules for transporting alcohol by road

Transporting alcoholic products requires adherence to specific rules:

  1. Cleanliness of the vehicle: Foreign odors can spoil the taste and aroma of beverages. The vehicle body must be clean before loading.
  2. Temperature control: The optimal temperature for transport is +10-15°C. Refrigerated transport is recommended for international shipments.
  3. Securing the cargo: Products must be securely fastened to prevent damage.
  4. Vehicle condition: Vehicle conditions such as shaking can affect the properties of beverages.
  5. Light protection: Alcohol is sensitive to sunlight, so transport should occur in closed vehicles.
  6. Documentation: All accompanying documents must be available.
  7. Security: The vehicle body should be fully metal to minimize robbery risks. Route planning is done meticulously.

Documentation requirements

For alcohol transportation, the following documents are necessary:

  • Invoices
  • Certificates of conformity
  • Transport waybills
  • Licenses

For international transport, customs declarations and excise stamps on containers are also required.

Responsibility for product damage

When transporting expensive alcoholic beverages, cargo insurance is recommended. The carrier is responsible only if proven negligent. Many logistics companies offer alcohol transport under TIR, providing insurance coverage up to $200,000.
