Zonos puts down roots in Gold Coast to strengthen landed cost accuracy in Asia-Pacific February 22, 2022 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time GOLD COAST, Australia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zonos, the global technology leader for cross-border commerce, has opened its first international office in Gold Coast, Queensland, to better meet the needs of their growing APAC (Asia-Pacific) business. Travis Robinson has been appointed APAC General Manager.
As Asia-Pacific is expected to lead global ecommerce sales, the need for accurate cross-border duty and tax calculations, VAT compliance, and HS code classification in the region will continue to grow. Zonos simplifies the complexities of cross-border using deep expertise and APIs to make global commerce accessible to everyone by narrowing the customer experience gap between domestic and international while allowing retailers to keep operations in-house. “Expanding to Australia is the next exciting step among many we are taking to build a company with great products, great people, and to execute our mission to create trust and transparency in global trade,” said Zonos CEO, Clint Reid. “We aim to build world-class tech that can connect the world through trade.” Zonos chose the Gold Coast rather than a larger Australian metropolitan city because it closely mirrors the company’s culture of supporting healthy work-life balance, by living and working where others play.
Zonos is headquartered in St. George, Utah, a city known for its sunshine, tourism, and rapidly developing tech sector. “Australia and the Gold Coast have been truly amazing,” said Travis Robinson, GM APAC at Zonos. “The only thing that has exceeded the area itself is the level of talent that has come on board. I’m excited to see the real impact our Gold Coast team makes not only for our customers but on Global Trade.”
