DG International cross-border data powered by Hurricane

No primary category set

Global logistics specialist DG International has selected Hurricane Commerce as its cross-border data partner. The decision to integrate Hurricane’s solutions forms a key part of DG International’s ongoing digital transformation programme to enhance the experience of their customers.

DG has integrated Hurricane’s Aura solution which covers the critical cross-border areas of duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied parties screening as well as Zephyr, its bulk clearance data enhancement service. Hurricane’s solutions can be accessed through DG International’s Horizon portal, a one-stop shop for customers to efficiently manage their global supply chain and multimodal transport requirements.

DG selected Hurricane after its cross-border delivery business, Pro Carrier, successfully integrated its data solutions at the end of last year to support its UK ecommerce retailer customers with their cross-border trade.

Major regulatory changes including Brexit, the US STOP Act and the abolition of the VAT exemption on low value goods in the EU and elsewhere has transformed the landscape of global ecommerce in 2021 with complete and accurate shipment data now mandatory.
