SONAR Signals Open API

SONAR Signals Open API will change the way freight professionals make pricing decisions. 

Our proprietary algorithms use a variety of datasets, such as historical volumes and tender rejections, as well as previously assessed spot rates found in SONAR to create a custom pricing power score.

You can integrate the power of SONAR’s real-time freight data into your own commercial software or Transportation Management System, and this will only take you about 5 minutes. SONAR Signals Open API clearly displays who holds the pricing power in the markets that matter most to your business. Depending on current market dynamics, that power may reside heavily in your hands or your carrier’s, now you can get ahead of challenging conditions. 

Being able to have this display for all logistics management teams will help your company be more efficient and keep your freight moving off your docks.
