A rapidly growing cross-border eCommerce shipping specialist and a Hurricane customer.

Some of the UK’s biggest online retailers, handling high volumes of cross-border transactions, were experiencing severe issues with shipments being held at customs due to poor data.

By integrating Hurricane’s data enhancement solution, our customer, logistics specialist Pro Carrier, was able to reduce the volume of parcels held at customs from over 30% in peak 2021 to less than 0.5% in peak 2022.
