How to Add & Edit Your API Carriers

As a neutral platform, Freightview empowers its users to be hands-on with their carrier network.  We've made it easy for you to Add, Edit, and Remove those partners within our App - in just a few clicks!

Adding a Carrier

First, log in to your Freightview account and select the “+” to the right of the Carrier/Broker banner on the right-hand side of the page.

add carrier

Freightview is currently synced with approximately 90 LTL carriers/brokers. So while you can certainly scroll down the list if necessary, we do provide a search bar to assist in finding the carrier/broker you’re looking for.

Once you select the provider you'd like to add, we may ask for additional information that will help us identify your carrier account. Click “Authorize” to add the carrier.

This will prompt us to start connecting with your rates via API.  You can follow the progress on the FV Home Page:

While we strive to connect with as many carriers as can, you may still come across this message when you try to add your carrier:

LTL cloud TMS freight

This indicates that we’re working to add this carrier/broker, but they have not been implemented on our system yet. If you see this, please keep them on your profile! We prioritize the carriers/brokers we connect with based on the number of requests we receive to add that carrier. The more requests we receive, the sooner we'll work on getting them live on our platform.

Removing a Carrier

You can also easily remove a carrier or broker from your profile.  To do this, go to your Freightview home page and click on the carrier from the list, in this case, we clicked XPO:

LTL carrier management TMS

A slider will pop out with the option to Remove them.  Once clicked, you'll no longer see their LTL rates listed when running quotes.

Re-adding a Removed carrier is just as easy, however, it may take an additional touch from us on the backend,  please reach out to Support if you need further assistance.


Updating a carrier

Did your account experience an update? Clicking that carrier from the list also allows you to enter new credentials or carrier rep contact info.  Any contract or tariff updates should be automatic, as long as your account on the carrier site is reflecting the changes, you'll see them in Freightview!
