How to get your FedEx account setup and Alcohol Shipping Agreement to use the LibShip program
In order to ship alcohol via LibShip you need:
- An active FedEx account.
- An Alcohol Shipping Agreement on file with FedEx.
This allows Makers to ship wine and spirits licensee-to-licensee. For more info on FedEx alcohol shipping requirements, visit their website.
Step 1: Create a FedEx account
If you don’t have a FedEx account already, you can set one up here.
Step 2: Alcohol Shipping Agreement
Once your FedEx account is created, reach out to your FedEx account executive to get a FedEx Alcohol Shipping Agreement.
Don’t have an assigned account executive? Call FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx (1.800.463.3339) and request that an account executive call you.

For the Alcohol Shipping Agreement, FedEx will require the following information from you.
- Legal Entity Name
- Shipping Address
- FedEx Account #
- Contact Name
- Contact Phone
- Contact Fax
- Contact Email
- Website Address
The info you provide must match your Alcohol License.
- Makers also need to provide a copy of their Federal TTB and Origin State license.
- Applicants should write "LibDib Referral" in any blank space on the application form (this will ensure proper and efficient processing with FedEx Legal).
Note on residential addresses
If you have a residential address on your TTB license, ensure that that your FedEx permit application has the same address and you must reference LibDib on the application for FedEx legal to approve it. If you do not reference LibDib, you may experience a longer turnaround time.
Once your info is complete, it gets sent to FedEx legal to review. If you referenced LibDib on your application, this process is usually completed within a week.
