This page details a component of our legacy API system, which will be retired in 2022.
We encourage all EROAD customers to migrate their API integration keys to our new Integrations service.
EROAD APIs enable you to integrate valuable EROAD data into your transportation management, payroll or other business software for consistent and accurate reporting.
The APIs and Partner Gateway are available for customers on the Premium plan. Our design approach provides an open, standards-based interface using REST architecture and provides an easy and intuitive way of communicating with EROAD via the HTTP protocol. You can use GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE requests to access the API endpoints.
Additional fees may apply to use of the EROAD APIs.
|Developers||Our simplified API workflow makes it easy for you to get started integrating with EROAD. Go to the EROAD Partner Gateway to integrate vehicle-specific data into the EROAD system.
The Fuel API enables you to import third-party fuel purchase transaction data to support fuel reporting with EROAD vehicle location and distance data.
The following table lists EROAD APIs along with their descriptions and types. You can view, interact, and export clients to work with our APIs on SwaggerHub.
|Current Location||Provides current location information for vehicles. Allows you to retrieve the vehicle current status – including location, speed, distance readings, engine hours and I/O (auxiliary equipment PTO) activity.||JSON/XML|
|Vehicle and Fleet||Vehicle and Fleet - Create, Read, Update, Delete. Keep vehicle list synchronized with Asset Management or TMS (Transport Management System).||JSON/XML|
|Driver||Driver – Create, Read, Delete. Synchronise driver list with HR system or ERP.||JSON/XML|
|Geofences||Geofence – Create, Read, Update, Delete. Synchronise sites of interest such as job sites with TMS.||JSON/XML|
|Geofence Entry & Exit||Geofence entry and exit stream. Date and odo stamped events to help monitor vehicle activity into and out of customer, depot and other geofenced areas of interest.||JSON/XML|
|Message||Send messages to an Ehubo2 and monitor message status (Sent, Received). Supports sending message to a vehicle from TMS.||JSON/XML|
|Partner Gateway||Key value pairs can be sent from a third-party system (e.g., TMS) into EROAD’s Depot for display against the vehicle in the Activity Tracking screen.||JSON/XML|
|Fuel API||Fuel transaction data per vehicle. Fuel providers can submit fuel transactions to the organisation’s Depot in an agreed format.||JSON/XML|
API Integration Workflow
Obtain an API key from Administration > My Organisation in Depot for Authentication. See API Key Setup for instructions. The key restricts customers to the data of organisations linked to the API. The API Key should be mentioned in the header of the request.
View, interact, and export clients to work with our APIs on SwaggerHub.
Review the EROAD use cases to view and plan the data you can extract from the API.
