Hurricane Commerce has been shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s eCommerce Awards.
Hurricane, along with its partners AEB and Pro Carrier, have been shortlisted for the ‘Best Innovation in Delivery’ category at the prestigious awards. The winners will be announced on September 27 as part of the eCommerce Expo in London.
The shortlisting is in recognition of the transformational impact Hurricane’s AI-enhanced data solutions and AEB’s customs software platform have had on Pro Carrier’s customs clearance processes.
By collaborating with Hurricane and AEB, Pro Carrier has gone from having over 30% of parcels held in peak 2021 to sub 1% in peak 2022. This has given customers confidence and assurance that their products will arrive on time.
Guy Fischer, Managing Director, Pro Carrier, said: “Pro Carrier’s partnership with Hurricane and AEB International is already creating huge advantages for clients sending products into the EU. Going from 30% of parcels held in Peak 2021 to sub 1% in Peak 2022 is a testament to the combination of clean, accurate data vetted by Hurricane and the streamlined technical management system from AEB. At Pro Carrier, we’re performing above the market standard for customs clearances – something no other provider offers.”
Martyn Noble, Chairman and CEO, Hurricane Commerce, said: “Working closely with Pro Carrier and AEB has combined individual expertise to develop an end-to-end process for retailers – making it more streamlined and fit for purpose. Using Artificial Intelligence, we can play a key role in ensuring products move through customs clearance as quickly as possible.
“Due to this partnership and the implementation of these systems, Pro Carrier now has access to a continually updated and accurate data sets to track parcels and capture the volume of customs holds in each destination country. In 2022, Pro Carrier saw just 0.12% of parcels held in customs throughout the busiest period of the year.”
Geoff Taylor, Managing Director, AEB International, said: “We’re very proud of our work with Pro Carrier and Hurricane. Our partnership has resulted in an integrated system which manages customs clearance data and tracks customs progress across European borders. The AI data cleansing, made possible through Hurricane, was invaluable. We’re looking forward to seeing what we can achieve in the future through our combined expertise.”
