Transporting alcohol

Q: I am a truck driver, doing deliveries and pickups mostly all day. Today I was asked to pick a load from a brewery, which is alcohol. I asked the management to change it because I am a Muslim and not allowed to deal with alcohol. Its been two hours and I am sitting in my truck waiting for the decision to be made by management, which can be mean that I could be fired or forced to go home. Kindly let me know if I am allowed to haul alcohol or not, particularly in my case. 

A: Try your best to avoid this. If you make a mistake ask Allah Ta`ala forgiveness.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
