    Example use cases

    Submit new shipment orders for processing.

    A tire retailer that sells new and remanufactured tire products globally is looking for a way to manage its freight budget and validate expenses. With the Freight Payment Shipment Order API, the tire retailer can audit and process payments to its carriers, which are later compared and validated against the carriers’ invoices for delivery to its customers.

    Update or modify existing orders.

    The tire retailer provides customers the flexibility to update or modify existing orders until the pickup time, based on the retailer’s inventory. Using the Freight Payment Shipment Order API, the tire retailer can share freight order updates in real time to ensure the final order reflects all changes during the sales process.

    Cancel shipments as needed.

    As orders are finalized throughout the sales process, there are occasional cancellations. With the Freight Payment Shipment Order API, the tire retailer can cancel an order that has already been submitted, ensuring the status of orders are always current.

    Requirements

    Must be an established client or partner of the U.S. Bank Freight Payment Program.
