Our Tools, Available on Your Websites

When people visit your website, you want to keep them there. YRC Freight APIs give your employees and customers all the shipping information they need without ever leaving your sites.

By the least complex definition, APIs are online middlemen. They allow your site to communicate with our products and services. They do this by retrieving detailed information about your LTL shipping business with YRC Freight. You’ll need to provide your username and password to access the Rate Quote and/or Invoicing APIs.

All YRC Freight APIs can be incorporated by your in-house developers or consultants.
