CNC API/EDI Solutions
Simplify the sharing of data daily through our API & EDI solutions which help to create efficient connections between your system and ours.
API - Application Program Interface
APIs work as a plug and play service allowing information systems – CNC’s and yours - to communicate easily. The systems talk to each other and data is exchanged in real-time. Specify the data you need and adjust the scope on your own easily.
At the heart of the digital age, APIs increase the efficiency of data exchanges and open new pathways for innovation. Create new products through innovative web and mobile apps by combining our API building blocks with your own services.
We deliver REST API that is widely used by web developers across various industries.

EDI - Electronic Data Interchange
EDIs allow the exchange of documents between two companies via electronic batches, relying on specific standards.
No change is required in your process for the setup. It will simply switch paper documents to electronic ones by separating each stream if necessary.
This solution streamlines the sending and receiving of your data such as booking requests and confirmations, original B/L, container tracking, schedules, etc.
This results in an increased efficiency for all transactional processes, hence bringing about strong advantages.
