Pro Carrier, the cross-border delivery business of DG International, is partnering with Hurricane Commerce to ensure its retail customers’ parcels flow smoothly through customs.
The company has integrated Hurricane’s data enhancement Zephyr API and its Aura API, which supports on duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied party screening.
The partnership forms a key part of Pro Carrier’s goal of providing UK eCommerce merchants with a complete cross-border delivery solution.
Gary Tervit, Pro Carrier’s Managing Director, 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.
“Whether you are an established eCommerce merchant or looking to scale, we are helping to simplify the cross-border delivery experience.
“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.”
Gary added: “We are investing heavily in Pro Carrier’s technology capability and our team of specialists as part of our growth plans for 2021 and beyond.”
David Spottiswood, co-founder of Hurricane Commerce, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Pro Carrier as part of their strategy of providing their UK retail customers with the most complete cross-border eCommerce service.
“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.
“Hurricane’s Zephyr and Aura APIs were created specifically to help merchants, marketplaces, platforms, postal operators and carriers put themselves in the best possible place to grow their businesses and ensure compliance.”
