Your company must have an agreement (“handshake”) with a data provider (shipping agent) to be allowed to view their data.
There are two ways to retrieve the data:
API integration (preferred)
Web interface for manual checks
This API is an access-controlled API. This means that your application needs to accommodate an OAuth2 authentication flow between the application user and the NxtPort platform.
The application user logs in to the NxtPort identity component, and your application requests access to the API on behalf of the application user. The NxtPort platform then returns an access token to your application, which can be used to call the API.
To be able to request an access token, your application needs to be registered in the NxtPort platform. Registering an application is currently a manual process, the support team will gladly assist you.
NxtPort has provided a web interface to allow for quick verification of a consignment.
You need to have a NxtPort account linked to your company which is allowed to see the data.
