Hurricane blows away e-Commerce headaches

[ December 14, 2020   //   ]

DG International’s cross-border delivery arm ProCarrier is partnering with Hurricane Commerce to ensure its retail customers’ parcels flow smoothly through customs.

It has integrated Hurricane’s data enhancement Zephyr and Aura APIs, which support on duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied party screening, providing UK eCommerce merchants with a complete cross-border delivery solution.

Pro Carrier managing director, Gary Tervit, said: “We believe we have the most comprehensive set of solutions for eCommerce customers and the integration of Hurricane’s game-changing APIs on data enhancement and compliance are an integral part of our offer.

“The onset of Brexit and other major regulatory changes like the US STOP Act and ICS2 are presenting some serious challenges for international retailers.

“By working with partners like Hurricane we can give our customers total peace of mind on key areas such as product descriptions, HS6 codes, calculating the correct duties and taxes and ensuring you are not sending prohibited or restricted goods into countries or exporting items to people on denied party lists.”

Co-founder of Hurricane Commerce, David Spottiswood, added: “The opportunities for merchants to be part of the seismic growth in eCommerce are vast, but so are the regulatory hurdles that need to be met.”
