Approach: ShipsGo Freight Forwarder API Service
Ruscon’s customer service department has been using ShipsGo services for more than one year. The company exports its products to more than 32 all over the world and uses 10 different container shipping lines in its shipments. Before using the ShipsGo tracking API module, they used to track their shipments’ containers from the shipping lines’ websites and spent too much time on each single container tracking.
ShipsGo gives API (Application Programming Interface) technology for its customers. API is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. For the sake of simplification, let us explain how it works. It has many containers to track its customized software system. The ShipsGo is part of its system supplying the current locations of the related containers. What is missing is the critical link to communicate Ruscon’s container tracking request to the ShipsGo and deliver Ruscon’srequest back to its system. In this case, API is the Messenger, takes Ruscon’s request and tells the ShipsGo system what to do. Then, ShipsGo delivers the current position of the related container. The Company’s software system acquires it and delivers it to its related customer.
Ruscon increased the visibility of its shipments thanks to ShipsGo. In addition to that, After using the ShipsGo API Tracking Module, time spent on tracking decreased significantly.
