Is VAT calculated based on the billing or shipping address of an EU customer?

I'm building an e-commerce store for a German client who sells and ships physical goods to consumers (not other businesses) worldwide.
If a customer in Spain purchases a product, they are charged VAT (at the applicable German rate).
But if the same Spanish customer purchases a product and has it shipped to her brother in the US, should VAT be charged?
