Quantum View API

File Download for Quantum View

The Quantum View® Application Programming Interface (API) makes downloading your shipment data even easier. The Quantum View API allows you to automate the file retrieval process and import Quantum View data directly into your back-end systems. This direct channel of critical, time-sensitive shipment information can help your business operate more efficiently and effectively.

Create your own schedule to retrieve Quantum View files when you need them, up to every hour. After this one-time setup, shipment information automatically downloads from UPS at the times you specify. Fully customisable and platform-independent, the Quantum View API can be seamlessly integrated with almost any database or enterprise system.

Integration of this API requires access to information technology resources familiar with XML. During implementation, you can access your files from the Quantum View file download page.
