Wine Logistics - MWM Italy

MWM: for three generations, a reliable partner for integrated logistics, with highly efficient and optimised modular solutions.


Wine Logistics

Shipping Italian wine to Europe and worldwide

MWM offers a complete logistics service dedicated to the storage, shipment and distribution to the end user of wines, alcohols, beer and intermediate spirits with excise duty paid at destination, guaranteeing fiscal correctness, punctuality and reliability of deliveries.
Our service offer focuses on warehouse management at our authorised and technically equipped premises to which the various accessory services required by the customer are linked.
For wine producers, product distribution has now become an unavoidable factor: for this reason, flexible, careful and reliable logistics is an element of opening up foreign markets and a very important lever for the export of wine companies that have already been operating within European markets for years.
MWM supports companies (European buyer or Italian exporter) in the development of their business, acting as a strategic partner for the efficient and optimised management of all the logistical and bureaucratic operations connected with the import-export of wine, in compliance with the health, administrative and fiscal regulations in force within the EU and in the country of destination.
Thanks to a special system for the telematisation of excise duties and the interchange of data with Customs, MWM takes care of all the documentation in order to make the shipping process smooth. Failure to comply with the administrative and fiscal procedures can, in fact, result in additional costs and the blocking of goods at the border, with consequent delays in delivery.
MWM is a strategic HUB for the import-export of wine, able to manage the relationship between customer and foreign buyer and to follow the entire handling chain with competence and accuracy: from storage in monitored and temperature-controlled warehouses to accurate packaging, from transport in refrigerated containers to product delivery.

The wine logistics service has multiple advantages for Italian export and import companies in Europe and outside the EU.

  • Correct management of taxation and data transmission to the Customs Authority.
  • Constantly monitored warehouses for the correct storage of the product at the required temperature (by the product or by the customer).

  • Financial advantages with the integrated services of Customs Warehouse, VAT Warehouse and Excise Tax Warehouse in a suspensive condition that allow the payment of taxes to be postponed until the moment of sale.
  • Competitive rates for shipping and purchasing packaging materials through a network of selected partners, from MWM warehouse.

MWM is a strategic partner for the export of Italian wines, in Europe and worldwide

Wine represents one of the excellences of Made in Italy, loved and appreciated all over the world. MWM, a strategic business partner for wine logistics, stands by the side of Italian operators to ensure that all the passion contained in a bottle is not wasted, but can be valorised throughout the logistics chain.
The way wine is shipped within the EU, is regulated by the computerised system for monitoring and controlling the movement of products under suspension of excise duty introduced by Legislative Decree 48/2010 as part of the European EMCS (Excise Movement Control System) project.
According to the provisions of the decree, the shipment of wine on EU territory can only take place between excise code holders, authorised to send or receive goods accompanied by the appropriate excise accompanying document (e-AD or e-DAS).
Knowing the mechanisms of this system is today basic for Italian wine operators, in order to guarantee their customers a high quality standard of service and the fiscal correctness necessary to avoid incurring the heavy sanctions regime envisaged.

Wine logistics means:

  • Being able to combine a high level of continuous service with the warehouse and transport logistics costs, required by the market.
  • Guaranteeing punctuality and reliability of deliveries by working with a distribution network built over time.
  • Looking to innovation as a compass for the future with particular reference to product traceability.
  • Have the experience required to meet the different sales and organisational needs of producers. 


No two types of merchandise are the same, but we believe that wine is truly unique… because a great wine also requires great logistics!
