We get it, disconnected platforms are frustrating

At New Zealand Couriers, we know you are the kind of person who wants to feel in control of your business. In order to be that way, you need all your business information on one platform.

The problem is, you’re using a siloed platform to manage freight and it doesn’t talk to your other business tools. This makes you feel you’re doing twice the amount of work. I mean, why would you choose a freight partner that doesn’t make it easy to integrate with them?

We hate that when you use disconnected freight platforms you feel like you’re doubling up on your work. That’s why we built an API, so you can connect the platform you want with our data source. That way, you can manage all your freight in one familiar place. Here’s how it works:

  1. Request access to our API,
  2. Try our API, and
  3. start Using our API. Sounds easy, right?

So, request access to our API today, so you can stop dealing with disconnected platforms and start managing your freight where and how you want.
