Share Article

ClassIT® Web Service is the National Motor Freight Traffic Association’s (NMFTA) newest addition to its extensive ClassIT® product line. ClassIT® Web Service is a programmable interface that allows machine-to-machine interaction over the Internet using predefined (programmed) methods, which permits computer systems to talk with each other without user intervention. It is the NMFC commodities data offered as a cloud service for systems integration.

ClassIT® Web Service is based on the SOAP 1.1 standard using standard XML delivered over HTTPS. This configuration of ClassIT® is found to be most beneficial to the subscriber. By using SOAP, ClassIT® Web Service is implementation neutral, allowing it to be used by a wide variety of programming languages and operating systems. By using HTTPS, all the interactions are conducted securely overly the Internet via encrypted channels. And by using XML, which is a neutral data standard, the web service can be used with any database product. Thus, ClassIT® Web Service provides the subscriber the versatility to integrate classification information into its own internal systems with ease.
