To improve its handling of cross-border customs bureaucracy, global logistics and transport company Lenton Group has announced a partnership with Hurricane Commerce. Lenton Group is to use the tech company’s duty and tax calculator to support Lenton Group’s Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) solution for its e-commerce customers.
Online sellers will be able to access the DDP system through Lenton Group’s Hub-EZ, a one-stop logistics platform for marketplaces, online sellers and other players in the cross-border e-commerce marketplace.
UK based customs specialist tech company Hurricane Commerce has noted that in establishing this partnership with Hong Kong based Lenton Group, it will help the company expand its reach into the Asia-Pacific region.
Lenton Group’s Alex Langslow said, “We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Hurricane Commerce, allowing all our customers access to a leading platform for calculating duties and taxes for international shipments around the world. The Duty and Tax calculator is available on our online portal, Hub-Ez, and will be integrated into many of our upcoming products. E-commerce is a fast-growing and rapidly evolving part of the Lenton Group business, and partnering with best-in-class technology companies like Hurricane is an important part of our strategy.”
Martyn Noble, CEO of Hurricane Commerce, added, “We are delighted to be partnering with the Lenton Group and for our solutions to be playing a critical role in ensuring the seamless cross-border trade of their customers’ international shipments. Major events like Brexit, the US STOP Act, ICS2 and EU VAT reforms mean that complete and accurate data on e-commerce parcels has never been more important than it is today. Hurricane’s leading-edge technology solutions have been specifically designed to simplify the complex process and ensure frictionless cross-border trade.”
