FAQs of GLS Tracking API

GLS tracking API, known as MyGLS API, is an application programming service provided by GLS. It enables merchants or developers to seamlessly integrate real-time tracking information of GLS packages into their e-commerce sites or internal systems. This API allows merchants and their customers to track the latest statuses of GLS shipments, providing details such as the current location, in-transit movements, estimated delivery time, and any exceptions that may occur during the delivery process.

TrackingMore API is a robust, multi-carrier tracking solution that seamlessly integrates with 1,272 global carriers. Offering a unified order-tracking service for e-commerce and other sectors, this industry-leading API includes features such as real-time tracking, automated shipment notifications, and more. It is designed to enhance the post-purchase experience for customers, driving repeat sales and meeting the tracking needs of businesses.

The GLS APIs offer a range of functionalities to help you manage your shipments and logistics more efficiently. For example:

  • Parcel Label Generation: Generate shipping labels for your parcels, including all necessary information such as sender and recipient details, tracking numbers, and barcodes.
  • Shipment Tracking: Track the status and location of your shipments in real-time, allowing you to provide accurate delivery information to your customers.

The GLS carrier API application process is more complex compared to the TrackingMore API. GLS requires certain qualifications and a detailed application, making it challenging for some users to gain access.

In contrast, TrackingMore offers a simpler integration process within one to seven days, allowing users to quickly connect to multiple carriers without extensive qualifications or technical expertise.

TrackingMore API enhances your business logistics operation by offering up-to-date shipment status, customizable tracking alerts via Webhooks, and accurate, reliable, secure data handling. These features boost operational efficiency, customer satisfaction, and overall business growth.

First, you need to create a TrackingMore account. Then, go to the “Developer” section, and click “Generate API Key” to get your API key. It’s noted that for security reasons, API keys can only be copied and downloaded once generated. TrackingMore allows you to generate up to 4 API keys. 

To integrate the TrackingMore API, follow these steps:

  • After getting your API key, visit the TrackingMore API documentation for detailed integration instructions and code examples.
  • After that, Prepare your development environment and make initial API requests to ensure everything is configured correctly.
  • Then, integrate the API requests into your application, using endpoints like Create a Tracking to add tracking numbers and Get to retrieve statuses.
  • Additionally, Set up webhook notifications for real-time updates by configuring your server to receive POST requests from TrackingMore.
  • Finally, Conduct thorough testing to ensure all functionality works as expected. Once testing is complete, deploy the integration into your live system.
