Curated Shipping News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Shipping conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

Featured Shipping Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space.
