Hurricane Commerce and ePost Global Expand Their Partnership to Better Support Cross Border eCommerce
International logistics specialist, ePost Global, is expanding its partnership with cross-border data company Hurricane Commerce to support growth
EAST RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, Calif., March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com) - ePost Global is a U.S.-based international parcel company focused on helping direct-to-consumer e-commerce businesses to expand their global delivery options. As a tech-enabled solution with distribution partnerships across the world, ePost leverages Hurricane Commerce to ensure an efficient customs clearance process. Partnering with Hurricane since 2021, ePost 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.
Now, in an effort to support its continued growth, ePost Global is enhancing its service by also utilizing Hurricane's Aura solution for its eCommerce customers. Hurricane Commerce's Aura solution supports 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, customized solutions tailored to meet their needs.
"Hurricane has been a trusted partner whose solutions ensure that our customers' shipments have the necessary and accurate data, including HS codes. Our industry is constantly evolving. Distributing to global destinations requires us to comply with new requirements from regulatory changes, and data accuracy is essential to ensure the smooth movement of goods through customs.
"We are now delighted to be expanding 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, more regions across the world."
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."
