What does "hit a dock" mean?

Some states require wine and/or spirits to "hit a dock" (at our licensed or partner warehouse), also known as "at rest" laws, before being delivered to the Buyer. LibDib operates in a three-tier compliant manner to meet each state's warehousing requirement.


The following LibDib markets have at rest laws and therefore Makers must ship to a LibDib warehouse before LibDib delivers to the account:

  • California - Spirits Only
  • Colorado - Wine & Spirits
  • Illinois - Wine & Spirits 
  • Wisconsin - Wine & Spirits 

These LibDib markets DO NOT have at rest laws and therefore Makers can use LibShip to get products delivered to accounts:

  • California - Wine Only
  • Florida - Wine & Spirits
  • New York - Wine & Spirits
