Below is our recent interview with Misha Ercanbrack, Public Relations Manager at Zonos:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Zonos is the global technology leader in cross-border commerce. The company’s SaaS solutions give online retailers, marketplaces, logistics providers, trade organizations, and online marketplaces the tools and services to easily scale globally, including the only true landed cost solution on the market.
Zonos helps thousands of businesses better serve their international partners and customers. Our team of industry and software experts is expanding rapidly, both locally and globally.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Starting January 1, 2022, the Harmonized System is updating hundreds of its HS codes. HS codes are the universal basis for identifying products shipped across borders and are used to determine the applicable duty and tax rates. They are an important part of getting shipments through customs quickly and easily.
The Harmonized System is being updated with hundreds of new HS codes. Throughout 2022, countries will publish their corresponding country-specific HS code additions and changes. Importers are liable for shipments with incorrect HS codes, but with no standardized timeline of when each country will update their codes, staying compliant is difficult.
Zonos announced new and expanded Classify features to help businesses harmonize or re-harmonize their product catalogs in response to looming Harmonized System code changes at customs.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Zonos Classify has expanded to include a one-off HS code lookup tool and bulk upload feature for on-demand classification. The ability to search and review a fully cataloged history of HS code classification requests in Zonos Dashboard will also be coming in 2022
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: As more businesses seek increased control and transparency in their international sales, Zonos will continue to be the leading technology provider for enabling cross-border commerce. We are growing fast and have some exciting announcements coming soon.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: The best thing about Zonos is the people. CEO Clint Reid interviews every employee, and has built an amazingly capable, optimistic team of doers that are excited to bring cross-border into the future.
