Gulfstream Shippers Association is an association that combines the buying power of its members to secure and maintain competitive rates from ocean carriers. Our expertise is in the home furnishings, building materials, Outdoors / Sporting Goods, and manufacturing industries. Gulfstream's owners and representatives consist of former furniture, manufacturing, Outdoor Lifestyle Manufacturing, and building materials executives who understand the industry's needs and timelines. These executives have represented leaders including Bernhardt, Broyhill, Lexington, and Georgia Pacific. They possess over 90 years of cumulative experience in the logistics field. Gulfstream Shippers Association is a privately owned and operated company.
Unlike NVO's who have agents to coordinate and deal with ocean carriers, Gulfstream Shippers Association signs contracts directly with the carriers. This not only enables Gulfstream to bypass overseas agents or middlemen, but it also eliminates any guesswork to create accurate quotes and enables us to provide lower delivery costs to our customers. In addition, the direct shippers contract ensures that the Association members freight is loaded with priority on their ships. History proves that direct shippers contracts take priority over the NVO freight. Our contracts take the merchandise from the loading port to the customers door.
Because Gulfstream Shippers Association is a direct shipper's association, our container availability is in large supply, which allows for reliable transportation of products to our customer base.
Gulfstream Shippers Association is your importing specialist. While your current volume does not justify signing a service contract for your imports, joining Gulfstream Shippers Association will give you the benefits of having your own contract.

Direct To Consumer Wine Shipping
DtC Shipping is Critical to Your Business – So is DtC Compliance
WWI members enjoy a discount with Sovos ShipCompliant
SIGN UP OR RENEW 4 LESS
Direct-to-consumer (DtC) wine shipping is a critical part of many wineries’ success. In 2022, DtC shipments in the U.S. were valued at $4.1 billion and made up 12% of total off-premise sales of domestically made wines. The channel only grows in importance as consumers continue to migrate to online shopping and direct shipment.
While DtC wine shipping is a great way to bring your products to a wider audience, there are a variety of compliance considerations to keep in mind so that your business doesn't run afoul of regulators, especially as the last several years have seen increased scrutiny by regulators including audits and enforcement actions. There are serious consequences to non-compliance with laws surrounding licensure, age verification, labeling, carrier handling and more. Initial violations bring cease and desist letters, but fines and monetary penalties are also common. If noncompliance becomes habitual, DtC licenses can be revoked, which can have a domino effect and lead to the loss of production licenses.
Our partner Sovos ShipCompliant can help make sure your DtC shipping is always in compliance and you experience smooth sailing as your wine club and other shipments head out the door. Their cloud-based software offers real-time compliance checks and tax determination so your DtC shipping operations stay healthy (not subject to penalties, fines, or worse) for the long haul. On top of that, their Delivery Experience solution helps you deliver top-notch customer service around shipping in this age of Amazon and a new level of comfort/desire to have wine delivered to a customer’s home.
Washington Wine Institute members that are new or renewing Sovos ShipCompliant customers receive a 10% discount off a one-year contract of any Sovos ShipCompliant product.
