Cargo customers can now connect their own operating platforms directly to Delta Cargo using Delta’s new free Application Program Interface (API).
This connective technology enables its customers to seamlessly send and receive real-time requests directly to Delta from their own system.
Delta Cargo’s vice-president, Shawn Cole said: “API is all about real-time connectivity so externalising our shopping, booking and tracking APIs for customers is just another way that we are making it easier to do business with us.
“We realised that some customers prefer to use their own systems and don’t want to log into a separate website to get rates and availability. Now they have fast direct access to the information they need when shipping with Delta Cargo.”
Through the API connection, customers can now shop, book and track their shipments from their own platforms. It includes:
Customers are able to view Delta flight availability and current rates;
They will be able to create and manage bookings 24/7 directly from the user’s system and update bookings with real-time status;
Receive real-time updates on active shipments including GPS tracking and DASH Door-to-door shipment details;
The benefits of the API connection are available now for our customers and the company claims that it is easy to set-up.
After an initial testing phase, the connection with the Delta Cargo systems can be launched. For customers interested in learning more, contact [email protected] or review the API information on Deltacargo.com.
