International logistics specialist ePost Global is expanding its partnership with cross-border data company Hurricane Commerce.
ePost Global has been successfully using Hurricane’s Zephyr solution to ensure items being shipped from the United States have the correct Harmonized System (HS) code for import and export, allowing for a smooth passage through customs.
Now ePost Global is preparing to begin offering Hurricane’s Aura solution to its eCommerce customers enabling correct duty and tax calculations for goods shipped through commercial networks into Canada.
The company is further planning to roll out this duty and tax calculation functionality for worldwide destinations later in 2023.
Kelly Martinez, Co-President of ePost Global, said: “We pride ourselves on providing our customers with flexible, customised solutions tailored to meet their needs.
“Hurricane is a trusted partner whose solutions ensure that shipments have the necessary complete and accurate data including HS codes. Various regulatory changes and new requirements mean that accuracy of data is essential to ensure the smooth movement of goods through customs.
“We are now delighted to be extending our partnership with Hurricane to include its Aura API and the provision of duty and tax calculations initially on shipments to Canada and, later this year, internationally.”
Kelly added: “Our successful collaboration with Hurricane not only means we have access to their leading-edge data solutions, we also benefit from their extensive knowledge and ongoing guidance.”
Rob Dundas, Hurricane’s Business Development Director, said: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with ePost Global.
“We have built a strong working relationship during the last 18 months and it is through ongoing collaboration that we have developed our APIs to provide them with the functionality they require to add value to their cross-border eCommerce customers.
“We now look forward to supporting the ePost Global team in the roll-out of Hurricane’s duty and tax calculator.”
