What is the PortConnect API?

The PortConnect API is a simple REST service that can be used to send and retrieve data from PortConnect.  PortConnect receives container event information 24 hours a day from our partner ports the Ports of Auckland and the Port of Tauranga.

You can explore and test the available APIs in this developer portal, connected to live data.

Full documentation and examples are available here.

Pricing information is available on our main website here.
