Import & Distribution

National Import & Distribution to Wholesalers in All 50 States
The Harvest Importing’s primary goal is to provide top-notch wine importation services, which enable foreign and domestic wineries to reach wholesalers in all 50 states. Whether the terms are FOB US warehouse, ex-cellar, or FOB foreign port, our job is to provide a nationally compliant solution for wine distribution in the U.S. Our primary distribution warehouses in Maryland and New Jersey are in close proximity to the major ports of Baltimore and New York, with integrated container drayage services providing expedient and cost-effective transport from port to warehouse. Our warehouses may be used either together or individually in your national distribution strategy; both locations are easily accessible FOB points from which wholesalers all over the country pick up wine on a regular basis.

We are able to organize shipment of wines directly to retail, chain and restaurant accounts in the states MA, DC, NY and NJ allowing access to one of the largest markets in the country. Our warehouse provides next day delivery to the major metropolitan areas in the states, as well as regular deliveries to the outlying cities and towns.

Foreign & Domestic Logistics Management
