FAQ

We offer ongoing integration support and regular updates, ensuring that your Ongoing and EcoSped systems are always synced and up-to-date. APIs often undergo changes and updates, and it's our job to ensure that these changes don't disrupt your workflow. This means you can always benefit from the latest features and improvements from both Ongoing and EcoSped.

The EcoSped and Ongoing integration provides a comprehensive set of capabilities, including Transportation Price Requests, Transport orders, ETA, ETD and CO2 calculation, Shipping labels, e-Waybill, CMR, Tracking. All of these data exchanges with EcoSped are seamlessly integrated directly into your Ongoing system, enhancing the overall functionality and convenience.

The integrations with carriers, just like the EcoSped integration, are always developed and maintained in-house by our dedicated Cargoson team; these integrations are our utmost priority. For the connection between Cargoson and ERPs like Ongoing, we typically rely on specialized third-party providers.

This strategy allows us to tap into the deep knowledge and expertise of those who specialize in specific ERP systems. While we are the developers of Cargoson and naturally handle all carrier API integrations in-house, we recognize that we can't be specialists in every ERP platform out there.

In addition, many of these ERP integrations are built in close cooperation with our existing customers. This ensures that they are not only thoroughly tested, but also designed to meet the practical requirements of real businesses in their day-to-day operations. This way, we guarantee robust, reliable, and efficient integrations for you to use.

Absolutely! Cargoson's architecture is built to be carrier-agnostic, meaning that it's capable of integrating with a wide range of carriers, not just EcoSped. As long as the carrier has an API we can work with (or EDI, or even just email), you can incorporate their services into your Ongoing system through our platform. Additionally, we're constantly expanding our roster of carrier integrations based on customer demand and market trends, so you'll always have a rich selection of carriers to choose from.

Integrating Ongoing with EcoSped using Cargoson is a straightforward process. Simply reach out to us at support@cargoson.com. Our team will walk you through the process, offer a demo if needed, and assist you with the installation of the plugin into Ongoing. We'll also guide you on how to request and input the EcoSped API keys into Cargoson.

Rest assured, data security is our top priority at Cargoson. Your EcoSped API keys are securely encrypted in the Cargoson database. However, it's important to note that as your data originates from Ongoing and then is sent to EcoSped, we are not in full control over how these systems handle your data. Nevertheless, both Ongoing and EcoSped are trusted platforms with robust security measures in place.

Absolutely, the Ongoing-EcoSped integration supports all types of shipments: domestic, international, import, export, and cross-trade. The specific services depend on your chosen carrier(s), but we facilitate all freight modes: road, air, sea, rail, and all shipping modes: parcels, LTL and FTL freight shipping, and even parcel lockers.

EcoSped offers the following services: Road.

Yes, we're open to discussing custom feature requests. Each case is unique, so we encourage you to reach out to us at support@cargoson.com. We might already have a solution for either the Ongoing or the EcoSped side that might cover your need. If not, and the feature would be beneficial for other businesses as well, it could potentially be added free of charge. However, for features specific to your business, we can agree on a development cost.

Integrating EcoSped directly into Ongoing through Cargoson simplifies your operations significantly. You can now manage transport orders directly inside Ongoing, removing the need to log into various carrier systems including EcoSped. Furthermore, it eliminates the necessity to access Cargoson for daily operations, providing a unified and simplified process. While some unique features like analytics or carrier chat may still require logging in to Cargoson, the integration generally minimizes daily tasks, enhances productivity, and reduces potential for errors.
