Alerts & insights
Dockflow provides notifications on important shipping events and cargo condition readings, enabling you to take action preventing cargo damage. With ETA change notifications and free time measuring, you can increase your operational efficiency.
Documents received by email can be sent to the platform in one click. The Dockflow AI engine extracts and analyzes document data to automatically pair your documents with the corresponding shipments and share them with your partners.
The Dockflow platform is tailored towards forwarders and shippers dealing with sensitive or high-value container shipments. It includes special support for perishables and temperature-controlled shipping.
Data on the Dockflow platform belongs to their respective providers unless agreed otherwise.
Sensor manufacturers, carriers, terminal operators, forwarders, shippers and 3PLs can integrate with Dockflow through the API.
The Dockflow API is based on REST. If you’ve interacted with a RESTful API already, many of the concepts will be familiar to you.
