APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are becoming an indispensable part of simplifying supply chains by connecting the parties involved. BoxTop provides an extensive specification that allows you to trade information with your customers and partners.

Examples of this include an import shipment. Our booking service lets you receive booking details from overseas and feedback key information to your customers, all without any unnecessary double keying of data. This saves time and unnecessary work being undertaken.

Advanced integration makes your freight forwarding process simpler, more efficient and less susceptible to errors. Our API is separated into functional areas. Each functional area has its own authentication/validation keys to increase security for your business and customers.

Key APIs we provide are:

  • Job Bookings
  • Warehousing
  • Purchase Orders

It might sound confusing but with the help of our technical team, the process is made simple. If you have any questions about APIs, we are here to discuss your requirements and how we can help.

Technical Notes

  • We provide a secure WebAPI and all services are RESTful.
  • All calls are encrypted via SSL using 2048bit keys (SHA-256 with RSA)
  • All calls support either JSON or XML.


Useable data is crucial for us and our customers. Using BoxTop provides the access and flexibility we need. BoxTop is fast, efficient and it links our offices in Runcorn, Heathrow, Toronto and Budapest together with improved productivity.

Before BoxTop it would take one person all day to process a trailer load of 800 Italian fashion items. Now it’s done at the press of a button. That’s the clear path of efficiency we tread with BoxTop. Their real understanding of freight forwarding and IT means we can deliver success right at the feet of our customers.

For us BoxTop means – greater value and it’s good to have it on-board.

We have more to offer customers now, including much better visibility throughout the supply chain.

This is helping us win more business.

BoxTop has been a supplier to MIES International Ltd for the past 15 years. Their Intelligent Freight Management Systems have helped immensely to develop our business into what it is today. A modern, slick and professionally run Freight Management Company. Without BOXTOP and their ALL IN ONE PACKAGE, our day to day handling of freight and documentation would be far more difficult to process. In my book a testament to their abilities.
