Carrier interface: Transporeon shipping integration for carriers

In today’s fast-paced logistics environment, carriers receive freight orders from various digital channels, requiring information to be synchronized between multiple platforms—but the more systems that are managed simultaneously, the more 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, eliminating time and cost spent on manual processes.

Benefits of a carrier interface for logistics integration

Clock icon yellow and gray

Minimal effort, 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 a familiar environment and only need to be trained on one system.

Checklist clipboard icon yellow and gray

Zero input errors

Input errors and time delays are completely eliminated due to digital data transmission.

Simple planning and optimization

A centralized overview of all transactions simplifies the planning and optimization of processes and routes.


Seamless data transfer with carrier interfaces

My confidence level in the Transporeon solution is very high. Carrier onboarding was straightforward, and we realize new efficiencies in freight assignment, dock scheduling and progress tracking.”

I like the fact that I can see, not just the full week, but a month in advance of what’s available per day. I also like that I have a lot more options on how to filter my data and what I can go back to and review.”

An overview of our shipping integration interfaces for carriers

Outbound interface

Shipment data for assigned shipments 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 shipment 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.

Logistics integration 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.
