Implements partner integration to deliver real-time messaging capabilities and easy onboarding of partners.
In India, the growth of the third-party logistics market is fueled by the burgeoning e-commerce market and inclination of companies across sectors to outsource their logistics function. This growth, coupled with customers’ expectations to track their shipments real-time and receive notifications, propelled the need for logistics players like Blue Dart Express to connect with partners in real-time.

The platform leverages canonical data models to deliver both inbound and outbound messages in real-time and batch mode. Handling data in canonical formats makes it faster to add new partners.
The data transformation module, built using open source stack, converts messages from canonical formats into partner formats – a highly scalable module that can handle message exchange with partners of any size and technical capability.
It supports a wide variety of protocols such as AS2, SFTP, FTP and le formats like XML, CSV, JSON, EDIFACT, EDI X12.
The platform can: resend messages with audit trail; retry mechanism for failed messages with an option to configure the number of retries; audit logging for the messages.
Additionally, the throttling system controls the number of messages being exchanged with the partner in a second.
