TOOLKIT
SHIPPING API
ConnectShip Toolkit is a full featured, server-based shipping API known industry-wide for its scalability and reliability. Toolkit integrates with TMS, WMS, ERP, order management, e-commerce, or other business systems using industry standard interfaces such as .NET, XML web services, and COM. Toolkit connects to both Windows and non-Windows platforms and offers unlimited customization and scalability options.

TOOLKIT CLOUD
HOSTED SHIPPING API
Toolkit Cloud enables online (cloud-based) access to the ConnectShip Toolkit API solution online, without the requirement to install a dedicated, onsite server – reducing the need for IT resources. Toolkit Cloud is available in a pay-as-you-go model, again reducing the initial investment cost. Toolkit Cloud gives you a powerful and flexible technology base for building applications, and offers the flexibility to evolve with your future business needs.

Toolkit Merchant is a highly scalable shipment rating API that allows you to integrate rating functionality into your existing e-commerce stores and enterprise applications. Toolkit Merchant, through XML interfaces, allows you to include your available/negotiated rates and services into your TMS, WMS, ERP, or other applications so that customers can compare and select services that most fits their needs.

“ConnectShip quickly provided us functionalities that, otherwise, we would have had to develop ourselves; Like the consolidation of packages that are processed over different days for one shipment. [Toolkit] allows us to think of future projects like the integration of different carriers using the same technology, with all the information coming from the same data source.” [Translated] - Cristina Algas, Head of Operations, boboli
