CHAMP’s open APIs have accelerated innovation and helped partners leverage vital data in their digital business ecosystems
CHAMP Cargosystems has achieved 10 million API calls in one month in August 2022. This momentous milestone represents the vast reach and flexibility of APIs. Furthermore, it demonstrates how the CHAMP community benefits, in its various business and operational functions, from CHAMP originated data. APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, allow the capabilities or data of one computer system to be used by another, blending state-of-the-art solutions to gain added value and efficiency.
In early 2022, CHAMP launched an API Partner Program to promote collaboration around its flagship product – Cargospot – bringing together API developers from airlines, ground handlers, general sales agents, software houses, and other third-party companies to develop cutting-edge solutions for the Cargospot ecosystem. This allows the Cargospot community to use new and innovative products that are tailor-made for Cargospot, select from a wider choice of partners/solutions, and implement these API-based solutions rapidly.
Similarly, Traxon cargoHUB APIs can leverage data from the world’s biggest air cargo community platform, which links to carriers who move over 80% of global air freight. This data can, for example, power enhanced tracking or visibility data via Traxon Premium Tracking and third-party systems.
“CHAMP is thrilled to achieve such a profound milestone in the air cargo community,” says Lee Booth, VP Global Products at CHAMP Cargosystems. “Our products and data are now requested around the world and at large frequency. Furthermore, with the introduction of our API developer portal, our customers and partners have easy access to our open and collaborative systems to achieve anything.”
