Intersoft & Hurricane Commerce partner for HS code provision

Royal Mail owned Intersoft are partnering with Hurricane Commerce to provide UK retailers with access to the correct Harmonised System (HS) codes which are essential to ensure the smooth cross-border movement of parcels through customs.

The partnership with Hurricane Commerce – a global data partner for postal operators, online retailers, ecommerce platforms and carriers – aims to support the international growth ambitions and compliance requirements of Intersoft’s clients, including some of the UK’s largest retailers and brands.

The announcement is particularly timely given the implementation of new import control regulations which came into effect on the 1st of March 2023. Import Control System 2 (ICS2) requires complete and accurate advance electronic data sets for all shipments coming to or via the European Union by air including a mandatory HS6 code.

Intersoft has integrated Hurricane Commerce’s software solution to cover the areas of data enhancement, duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied parties screening. The Hurricane landed cost engine calculates the duty rate, tax rate, duty payable and tax payable in the currency of the sending or receiving country.

Our carrier management platform constantly adapts to ecommerce challenges and this partnership is a vital addition to our offering. It will give Intersoft customers peace of mind when shipping internationally.

The ability to use Hurricane’s generated HS codes within our label production means customers will have one less obstacle to overcome. The integrity of data matters, and with Hurricane’s intuitive AI constantly learning from its users, we can integrate that data in a seamless way.

– James Thomas, Managing Director, Intersoft

By integrating Hurricane’s solutions, Intersoft is supporting its customers in ensuring compliance with regulatory events such as ICS2 which is a vital part of any international growth strategy.

– Rob Dundas, Business Development Director, Hurricane

The announcement comes after the success of Intersoft’s solutions for customers using Royal Mail’s Pro Shipper platform. Intersoft is a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Mail. The Hurricane integration is now available through Intersoft’s API.
