Automating Logistics

How Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) Will Change Shipping In 2018

It is hard to predict the speed at which technology will impact logistics dramatically. From Geo-tagging capabilities to autonomous robots, technology will have enormous impacts on the logistics industry as a whole. Application Programming Interfaces or APIs will be at the center of connecting all these features into a single management system.

In 2015, the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) was the core of advanced transportation management systems, but it is becoming irrelevant. Shipping APIs are taking over the shipping industry, becoming the most tech practice among shippers. In a research conducted with 200 supply chain managers, 85% are using EDI, but 43% were unsatisfied with them. 55% of the respondents believe APIs is a practical option to use instead of the EDI. The main reasons for the replacement are the need to function in real time, compatibility to use competitive TAT, and big data tech compared to EDIs.

Almost every business today has shipping needs whether it be buying products or selling products, and knowing where your packages are has traditionally been provided through lagging milestone updates. Traditionally, lagging milestone updates are when couriers only update the shipper after a package has reached a certain point. This means that you only get notified after packages pass certain checkpoints, or milestones, in the delivery process.

How Mobile Has Changed the Ways We Ship
