Hurricane Commerce agrees deal with ELI Holdings

Cross-border trade software specialists Hurricane Commerce has agreed a deal with UK-China business organisation ELI Holdings to support Chinese companies involved in international e-commerce.

UK based Hurricane Commerce provides businesses with a number of digital solutions that include data enhancement product classification, duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied parties screening.

In a large part due to Brexit, the firm says its services are in demand as a sizeable number of companies enjoying borderless trade with the EU now require support with cross-border trade bureaucracy. At the same time the US has enacted the STOP Act that requires all mail parcels to have complete and valid advanced electronic data (AED) to pass through US customs.

Martyn Noble, chairman and CEO of Hurricane Commerce, commented, “We are excited to have formed a partnership with ELI Holdings. ELI has been enabling businesses in China and the West to trade successfully for over 25 years. We will be working with James Wang and the ELI team to enable companies and organizations involved in Chinese e-commerce to capitalize on the many opportunities available while also successfully meeting the challenges of a fast-moving regulatory environment.”

Wang, chairman of ELI Holdings, added, “Together, our two companies can offer businesses the required technology, knowledge and skills to succeed in the complex world of global cross-border trade.”
