Lenton Group, a global logistics and transport provider, has announced a partnership with postal technology company Hurricane Commerce that will see it use Hurricane’s duty and tax calculator to support the launch of its Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) solution and its commitment to a seamless cross-border trade experience for its e-commerce customers.
The calculator is available through Lenton Group’s Hub-Ez – a one-stop logistics platform for online sellers, marketplaces and others involved in cross-border e-commerce.
Hurricane notes that establishing the partnership with Hong Kong-headquartered Lenton Group will form an integral part of its expansion into Asia-Pacific.
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.”
