For container transportation, data protection and system integration stand as pillars of operational success and customer trust. With sensitive information flowing through logistics networks, safeguarding data against cyber threats is of the highest importance to prevent breaches and maintain integrity. Moreover, employing API/EDI integrations and smart digital services will help streamline your operations and stakeholder communication, ultimately increasing efficiency and accuracy.

Our solutions to these key topics not only enhance operational effectiveness but also ensure compliance with industry regulations, improving your resilience and dependability in an increasingly digitalized world.

Safeguarding your information

Protecting and respecting the privacy and confidentiality of all our customers’ data is one of our fundamental tenets as a company. We are aware that cyberattacks are becoming more advanced and frequent and can seriously damage a business’ operations and reputation. That is why we follow stringent security policies and procedures, such as encrypting all data in transit and at rest, using strong passwords and multi-factor authentication, and regularly updating both our software and hardware.
As part of our commitment to data protection, we also invest in comprehensive training for our staff. This training equips them with the knowledge and skills to identify and prevent phishing, malware, ransomware, and other common cyberattacks. By adhering to these best practices, we aim to minimize the risk of data breaches and foster trust with our customers, assuring them that their sensitive information is in safe hands with us.

Leverage the power of automation
with seamless integrations

In today’s digital era, however, container transportation relies not only on secured data but also on timely and precise access to relevant data. This empowers businesses to automate processes, reducing the likelihood of errors, and saving valuable time.

To enhance our partnerships, Ancotrans offers a range of integration solutions aimed at optimizing processes for our customers. We achieve this through API and EDI solutions, facilitating seamless data transmissions between our systems that give you the ability to have complete visibility and access to data.

API or EDI: Which method should you choose?

API and EDI data integration solutions are designed to streamline your business’ data needs.

The difference between them is how they go about achieving the results you need.

An API Integration (Application Programming Interface) represents the future of data integration. Here, we facilitate real-time communication and data exchange between our platform and our clients’ systems, enabling automated processes, tracking, and reporting.

When it comes to a customized EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) integration solution, companies leveraging legacy technology frequently choose these standards to effectively integrate with one or more of our EDI solutions. We specialize in EDI integration solutions to seamlessly connect our logistics services with their existing systems, ensuring seamless data flow and operational synergy.

FEATURES

API (Application Programming Interface)

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)

ACCESSIBILITY

Cloud-based

Data is accessed through a software interface.

File-based

Data is stored in a file between two parties on the premises. Different standard formats, e.g., SFTP and AS2.

SPEED

Real-time data exchange
Data can be updated instantly and synchronously between multiple systems.

Snapshot

Data is sent asynchronously. The receiver sees a snapshot in time.

UPDATES

Individual transactions

Each transaction can be handled as an individual request so that errors don’t often impact other requests.

Batch data
