Pitney Bowes Adds Global Trade Solutions Protocols To Remove Uncertainty From Costs

Pitney Bowes has expanded its Global Trade Solutions portal, a set of technological protocols designed to facilitate seamless international trade. Users can access the portal to:

  • Manage Guaranteed Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) shipments;

  • Calculate import duty and taxes;

  • Access resources for country import/export guides; and


  • Look up full digit Harmonized System (HS) commodity codes and restrictions.

Because duties, taxes and trade restrictions vary from country to country, merchants need to create a transparent experience, including accurate final costs, for the end customer.

The portal can help retailers navigate the complexities of global trade while expanding cross-border reach with these web tools and APIs. The APIs can be embedded in business processes, for example to enable a merchant to charge accurate import duty and taxes at checkout, and to offer a total landed cost to international customers.

The APIs also allow merchants to classify their product catalog and create required documentation — such as a commercial invoice or packing list — including 10-digit HS codes for the country of destination.

This solution is part of the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud.
