Carrier interface: Transporeon shipping software for carriers

Carriers today receive transport orders from various digital channels, requiring information to be synchronized between multiple platforms. The more systems that are managed simultaneously, the more time-consuming, complex and error-prone it is to match datasets. Carrier interfaces allow for a real-time exchange of digital information between the Transporeon platform and the carrier’s internal system – without any additional work or transmission errors!

Benefits of a carrier interface

Clock icon yellow and gray

Minimal extra effort and maximum time savings

No manual labor is required to transmit data.

Server icon yellow and gray

Uniform data

Thanks to the carrier interface, all data is stored in a single system and can be further processed for internal and external purposes.

Computer icon yellow and gray

Familiar IT environment

Dispatchers work in an environment familiar to them and only need to be trained on one system.

Reinert Logistic: Optimization of business operations

Interface for carriers

We have used Transporeon to optimize our processes. Our dispatchers now use their workforce more effectively, and interfaces give us a time advantage in planning and dispatch. In business operations, we most clearly feel the benefits of using time slots for our clients. Loading times for vehicles have been significantly reduced, which saves us money.”

An overview of our shipping management software interfaces for carriers

Outbound interface

Shipping information for assigned transports is provided by server-based export via FTP or web service for submission to the carrier’s in-house system.

Advanced outbound interface

Shipment transfer to the carrier including a link for time slot management.

Inbound interface

Inbound services for shipment visibility use the Transporeon platform to submit a status message directly from the carrier’s system to the shipper. The interfaces support status messages on the shipping and delivery levels.

Two-way interface

Two-way interface for Transport Assignment with Best Carrier and No-Touch Order. The shipments are exported as soon as they are executed on the Transporeon platform. A transport offer can be entered in the carrier’s system, which can be accepted or rejected.

Time Slot Management interface

Transmission of Time Slot Management information to the carrier.

PDF export

PDF export of loading orders for assigned transports for transfer to the carrier’s in-house system or for archiving.

Attachment upload interface

A transmission will be triggered when the carrier has added an attachment.

Surcharge interface

A transmission will be triggered when a surcharge request was accepted by the shipper.

Shipping software solutions with comprehensive functionality for carriers

Two-way exchange

Flow of information from the Transporeon platform to the carrier’s system and back.

Custom display

Information is provided in a standard format and can be customized during import.

Real-time matching

Information is exchanged between systems without delays.

Consistent digital transmission

Digital transfer of the original data through the established interface.

Comprehensive data types

Integration of information from Time Slot and Surcharge Management, attachments, status messages, geo coordinates, etc.

Interface for carriers: Mastering the challenges of data transmission

Effort involved in synchronization

Information needs to be managed and updated in various carrier platforms.

Error-prone data transmission

Manual input leads to errors. Changes are not automatically adopted.

High training effort

Dispatchers must be trained in multiple systems and need to be re-trained for updates.

Inconsistent data

Editing data in parallel across multiple systems leads to inconsistent information.

Data stored in multiple locations

Information stored in multiple systems requires a lot of time to specifically track down and reconcile.

High quality standards

Shippers expect error-free order processing, quick communication and a digital exchange of information.
