Hurricane Commerce shortlisted for prestigious industry awards

We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted in two categories in this year’s Parcel and Post Technology International Awards.

Hurricane has been chosen for Supplier of the Year and New Business Development of the Year.

Supplier of the Year recognises “businesses which have had a big impact on the postal industry over the past year, whether it’s for investment in new technologies, work with the postal operators or because of impressive growth.”

Meanwhile, Business Development of the Year sought entries from companies that are supporting posts in maximising new revenue streams through diversified services and solutions.

For this award, we entered Zephyr – our “game-changing” data enhancement solution to support the exponential growth in cross-border eCommerce.

Hurricane’s Zephyr API:

  • Identifies invalid descriptions
  • Returns a status code for each imported consignment
  • Includes a product description, HS6 code and, if required, 8 and 10-digit import and export codes
  • Can process over 700 million requests per day with 85% accuracy
  • Achieves average response times of 100 milliseconds

Zephyr complements Hurricane’s other industry-leading solutions.

Hurricane’s Bluestone AI engine powers its auto-classification function, while its Aura API provides real-time calculation of duty and taxes and the identification of prohibited and restricted goods and denied parties.

Our solutions are helping customers including postal operators, carriers, online retailers and eCommerce marketplaces grow new revenues and stay compliant in the face of ever tightening cross-border regulations and laws.

They include the US STOP Act, Import Control System 2 (ICS2) and the EU’s modernisation of VAT package.

Martyn Noble, CEO of Hurricane Commerce, said “When we started Hurricane Commerce four years ago, our aim was to become the go-to provider for cross-border eCommerce solutions.

“We are absolutely thrilled for the hard work and dedication of our talented team to have been recognised in the shortlisting for these two prestigious industry awards.”
