How does the connection process work?

TransFollow’s eCMR is the standard for the logistics sector

As in many other sectors, paper solutions in transport and logistics are increasingly giving way to digital innovations. How can you connect as a software provider?

The eCMR of TransFollow

Companies that use a large number of eCMR’s on a yearly basis benefit from an integration between TransFollow with their software system or supplier. Integration is possible with TMS, FMS, WMS and ERP systems. The software has been extended with the option to create, issue and manage the digital consignment note.

Connection guidelines

The documents and materials on developer.transfollow.com help developers to quickly and easily connect to the TransFollow API. You can use the TransFollow API if you are familiar with the http protocol, JSON data presentation and REST principles. OAUTH2 knowledge is also required.

API connection with TransFollow

A successful implementation

Connecting is more than just connecting to the API. On the Support pages, you can read in detail how a successful implementation works. Also discover our walkthrough section. Here you will find more information about the API, the lifecycle pages of the eCMR, the concepts behind the eCMR, the TransFollow Approval, account structure and permissions.

How does the integration work?

Step 1: Partner environment

  • TransFollow provides an API key for the partner environment. This is how you, as a software supplier, start the integration process. You get access to the partner environment. This mirrors the production environment and is purely intended for testing.

Step 2: System verification

  • TransFollow then carries out a system verification test during which we verify the correct integration and operation of TransFollow in the software/system. After approval, the verification and certification is complete. You will receive an API key for the production environment when a licence agreement between you and TransFollow has been concluded.

The certification process confirms the integration quality. TransFollow accepts you as a software supplier for the approved list of software integrations. More information about the integration can be found on the pages under support.

After the integration

After the integration, as a software supplier you can sign a licence agreement and distribute credits among the TransFollow users. The philosophy and strategy of TransFollow requires close interaction with and the participation of the software suppliers in the further development of the TransFollow platform in order to optimise it for your customers. Your local distributor will be happy to provide more information.
