“Major events like Brexit, the US STOP Act, ICS2 and EU VAT reforms mean that complete and accurate data on eCommerce parcels has never been more important than it is today. Hurricane’s leading-edge technology solutions have been specifically designed to simplify the complex and ensure frictionless cross-border trade.”
