Logistics

Logistics has and will always be a document-heavy sector. The shipping industry has, in terms of documentation involved, remained the same for over a hundred years. To this day - Bills of Lading, Packing Lists, etc need to be printed out and physically sent to the recipient of the goods across the world. This makes Logistics an ideal use case for PDF Generator API.

Some of the document types characteristic to the logistics sector:

  • Bills of Lading
  • Packing Lists
  • Certificates of Origin
  • Pro-forma invoices

With PDF Generator API, logistics teams are able to automatically generate the needed documentation based on data in their logistics software. The document templates can be modified using our simple-to-use drag-and-drop template editor. By integrating PDF Generator API into your day-to-day logistics workflows, you are able to pull the data from your system and populate these templates, automatically. And the best part is - there is no coding required!

How PDF Generator API works?

Don’t worry about the document generation layer in your software - we will handle it.

Users can edit and manage their templates

We provide a workspace logic that allows creating a separate workspace for each of your user where they can edit and manage their templates. A new workspace is automatically created whenever you make API requests with a new workspace identifier.

Every user has their own workspace

Allow your users to modify templates

You can embed the template editor into your application to allow your users to modify their own templates. It is possible to display the editor in a new window/tab or in an iframe.

Allow your users to modify templates

Share templates with your users

You can set up default templates that can be used as base templates by your users. Whenever they modify a default template a new copy is saved to their workspace.

Default templates for your users

Powerful Expression language

You can write mathematical and logical expressions to manipulate and customize values displayed in components. Use ternary, arithmetic, bitwise and comparison operators, functions to sum, join and iterate arrays.

Powerful Expression language

A wide range of smart components

You can use different components like Text, Table and Barcode and define formatting formats to number and date values. It is possible to group, filter and sort lists and tables without a need to modify the data set on your side.

Smart components

Merge template and data via API

Powerful REST API to merge templates with data from your software. Just send the template identifier and JSON data to get the PDF.

What our customers say about us?

I would recommend PDF Generator API to everyone that needs to print something into PDF. Think about it: if you are creating software that focuses on accounting then you want to focus on accounting. You shouldn't waste time with coding fancy forms that you can easily drag-drop using PDF Generator API.
PDF Generator API allows our customers to quickly design and print multiple template types for Invoices, Picking/Packing Slips, Drop Notes, Address labels and pretty much any other document. Building a similar functionality in-house would have cost a lot of money in terms of resource.
