Transporter-for-Hire

A transporter-for-hire license allows the licensee to transport various types of alcohol to points within Pennsylvania. There are three types of transporter-for-hire licenses.

Class A – Permits the licensee to engage in the commercial transportation of liquor, malt or brewed beverages or alcohol to or from points located in the commonwealth.

Class B – Permits the licensee to engage in the commercial transportation of malt or brewed beverages only to or from points located in the commonwealth.

Class C – A fleet license that permits the licensee to engage in the commercial transportation of liquor parcels within the commonwealth.


In 2014, the Office of Chief Counsel issued an advisory opinion regarding retail licensees also holding transporter-for-hire licenses, thus having the ability to deliver up to 192 fluid ounces of malt or brewed beverages to consumers.

Advisory Notice 22 provides guidelines for retail licensees also holding transporter-for-hire licenses that intend to deliver malt or brewed beverages to consumers.
