Delta Cargo facilitates airfreight bookings with API interface

By Rachelle Harry

Delta Cargo has launched its new, free application progamme interface (API) that enables its cargo customers to connect their own operating platforms to book and track shipments.

With the Delta Cargo API, customers can view available capacity and rates, create and manage bookings 24/7, and receive real-time updates on active shipments including GPS tracking and DASH door-to-door shipment details.

Shawn Cole, vice president of Delta Cargo, commented: “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.”
