Boston, MA – Oct 14th, 2020 — Escher, the global leader transforming postal operators and couriers, announced the launch of Riposte Shipping 8.2 with Hurricane. This latest release features seamless integration with Hurricane, providing Posts with full access to taxes, duties, and compliance functionality, directly from within the Riposte Shipping application.
By 2022, cross-border e-commerce shipments will account for 22 percent of all e-commerce shipments of physical products, according to Statista. However today, there are many obstacles around international shipments that prevent Posts from delivering a positive experience for their customers. Landing cost sticker shock, confusion regarding required documentation and shipping restrictions, as well as the inability to screen all recipients for denied party status, are just a few of these challenges.
Riposte Shipping 8.2 with Hurricane is the comprehensive solution to these problems, offering Posts cost transparency, improved shipping reliability while making compliance convenient.
“Parcels and packets shipped across borders need an electronic ‘passport’ for safe and reliable travel and this is one-way Riposte Shipping helps Posts,” said Nick Manolis, CEO, Escher. “The seamless integration of Hurricane with Riposte Shipping is the leading solution that streamlines the international shipping process, improving delivery success rates, free from delays or missing contents.”
“We are excited to be partnering with Escher on the launch of Riposte Shipping 8.2 and to be providing Posts with a range of industry-leading solutions covering data enhancement, duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening, and denied parties screening,” explained
Martyn Noble, CEO, Hurricane Commerce.
Last year, Escher partnered with Hurricane to bring its Riposte Taxes, Duties, and Compliance solution to market, helping Posts everywhere simplify the cross-border shipping process. Riposte Shipping 8.2 with Hurricane represents a deeper integration with Hurricane. With real-time updates from Hurricane, parcels leave post office rooms for international delivery with a significant reduction in returned shipments.
