EasyPost is a multi-carrier shipping solution. The EasyPost API is one integration point for 100+ carriers, including Canpar. All Canpar functionality is accessible using the EasyPost API. EasyPost standardizes the inconsistencies across carrier APIs with its RESTful interface.

Canpar is a Canadian courier that was founded in 1976. Canpar has 1,700 employees and was purchased in 2002 by TransForce.

Canpar offers an XML API for Tracking, but there is no public access to it. You'll need to contact your Account Representative.

Here is a code example:
