Transportation (Delivery) Permit (ABCC)

In order for an individual to transport and deliver alcoholic beverages lawfully, they must apply for and receive an ABCC transportation (delivery) permit for each vehicle transporting and delivering the alcoholic beverages.

The operators must carry either the permit or a certified copy of it when transporting the alcoholic beverages.

Persons who have an off-premises alcoholic beverages license (M.G.L. c. 138, §15) are required to obtain a transportation permit to deliver alcoholic beverages to customers and “pick up” alcoholic beverages from authorized suppliers inside Massachusetts.

Persons who have an on-premises alcoholic beverages license (M.G.L. c. 138, §12) are required to obtain a transportation permit to “pick up” alcoholic beverages from authorized suppliers inside Massachusetts. On-premises licensees may never deliver alcoholic beverages outside of the licensed premises.

Individuals in charge of an ABCC permitted vehicle shall carry an invoice or sales slip stating the:

  1. names and addresses of the purchaser and seller,
  2. the date and the amount of the purchase, and
  3. an itemization of the number of the various kinds of containers and the kinds, quantities and brands of alcoholic beverages or alcohol.
