Integrating Your Own Direct Freight Express Account (BYO)

Currently, we only offer a BYO integration with DFE through Shippit.

What services are available

  • Road express

What do I need to do to connect my own account?

New DFE account

To discuss new account suitability you will need to contact DFE and notify them that you would like to integrate your account with Shippit. Once set up you can then integrate your account with Shippit.

Existing DFE account

If you would prefer to use your own carrier account please email configuration@shippit.com and provide the following information.

Once received, please allow 3 to 4 days for configuration to be completed. Your Shippit configuration specialist will confirm via email once it's ready to go!
