Although the BoxTop system is feature-rich with multiple modules covering pretty much every requirement a freight forwarder could wish for, we appreciate customers might prefer to use external systems for certain functions, so we write our own interfaces to many different systems. We’re also building a vast API library which allows other developers to simply integrate with BoxTop.
