DG partners with Hurricane Commerce

Global logistics specialist DG has chosen Hurricane Commerce as their cross-border data partner.

The decision to integrate Hurricane solutions is a key part of DG’s ongoing digital transformation program to improve the experience for its customers.

DG has integrated Hurricane’s Aura solution which covers the critical cross-border areas of duty and tax calculation, control of prohibited and restricted goods and control of refused parts as well as Zephyr, its bulk clearance data improvement service.

Hurricane’s solutions are accessible through DG’s Horizon portal, a one-stop shop for customers to effectively manage their global supply chain and multimodal transportation needs.

Major regulatory changes, including Brexit, the US STOP Act, and the removal of the VAT exemption on low-value goods in the EU and elsewhere, have transformed the global e-commerce landscape in 2021, with complete and accurate shipping data now mandatory.

Leah Samy, Director of IT and Business Change at DG, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our customers the best data solutions from Hurricane. Having accurate product descriptions, HS6 codes, and being able to correctly calculate applicable tariffs and VAT in real time are essential for doing business in the modern world of e-commerce.

“Hurricane’s real-time monitoring services for prohibited and restricted goods and refused parties are also extremely important in ensuring that our customers ship with confidence and compliance.

“Hurricane’s solutions are an integral part of our Horizon platform and DG’s commitment to providing our customers with the best possible experience. “

Vincent Miles, DG Communities Administrator, said: “Our customers are already benefiting from Hurricane data solutions, ensuring the accuracy of their product codes, duty and tax calculations and product selection. Having the right data is essential for a company to develop its existing markets and establish itself in new ones.

Martyn Noble, CEO of Hurricane Commerce, said: “DG is one of the fastest growing logistics providers in the world and they are at the forefront of their approach to digitalization.

“We are excited that our industry-leading suite of data solutions is a key part of the Horizon platform and the drive to provide end-to-end visibility and the best possible customer experience. “
