Hurricane to be Gold Sponsor at WMX Europe

Hurricane Commerce will be a Gold Sponsor at this year’s World Mail & Express Europe Conference.

The prestigious event will be held virtually on June 16 and 17.

WMX Europe is widely recognised as the foremost international trade event for post and parcel professionals.

This year’s conference comes at a critical time for the sector with major EU VAT changes and the introduction of the Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) coming into force from July 1.

Postal operators, both receiving and exporting, are busy preparing to capitalise on the opportunities presented by the IOSS, as are many of the biggest marketplaces and online retailers.

The implementation of the IOSS is set to feature prominently in presentations and delegate networking at the event.

So far, over 30 speakers have been confirmed including Hurricane CEO Martyn Noble and co-founder David Spottiswood who will take part in the ‘Optimising Cross-Border’ discussion.

Hurricane will also be a Gold Sponsor at the WMX Asia conference in November.

The events come at an exciting time for Hurricane, which was established four years ago and is increasingly regarded as the data partner of choice for postal operators, carriers, multi-carrier platforms, retailers, brands and marketplaces.

High profile customers include Royal Mail, SEKO, Australia Post, An Post and Lenton Group.

Its cutting-edge technology is also increasingly in demand in China and the wider Asia Pacific region where some of the world’s largest eCommerce players are having to adapt quickly to the onset of the changing global regulatory landscape.

Hurricane’s AI-driven, real-time solutions include Aura, which covers the three key areas of duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied parties screening, and Zephyr, the data enhancement service which ensures product and shipment data is of the quality needed to speed up customs clearance and onward delivery.
