Standard documentation

What can you expect from the DCSA interface standard?

The DCSA interface standard aims at standardizing the communication between data consumer and data provider. While the standardised processes and terminology can be applied to any messaging media (e.g. email, EDI, etc.), APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the modern standard for interoperable, digital data communication, enabling real-time data exchange, faster innovation and great customer experience. You can read more about the benefits of APIs here: DCSA - Driving digitalisation in container shipping.

In collaboration with its member carriers, DCSA has developed OpenAPI specifications supporting the use cases and user stories defined in the DCSA Interface Standards. DCSA OpenAPIs are published on DCSA SwaggerHub and are available to the general audience and developers for usage and feedback. More information on the OpenAPI specifications for the Booking process and the Bill of Lading can be found here: Booking, Bill of Lading.
