Our EDI & API solutions simplify the daily sharing of data by creating efficient connections between your system and CMA CGM's system.
What is it?
API - Application Program Interface
APIs work as a plug and play service allowing information systems - yours and CMA CGM's - to communicate easily. Systems talk to each other and data are exchanged in real-time. You can easily specify the data you need and adjust the scope on your own.
At the heart of the digital age, it increases the efficiency of the exchanges but also opens new pathways for innovation. Combine our APIs building blocks with your own services to create new products through innovative web and mobile apps.
We deliver REST API widely used by web developpers in many industries.
EDI - Electronic Data Interchange
EDI allows the exchange of documents between two companies via electronic batches and relies on specific standards.
The setup doesn't require any change in your process. It will simply switch from paper documents to electronic ones by separating each stream if needed.
The solution streamlines the sending and receipt of your data such as Booking Requests and confirmations, Original BL, Container tracking, Schedules...
This results in an increased efficiency for all transactional processes, thus bringing compelling advantages.
