API or EDI: What’s the difference? Both types of interfaces enable digitalisation and interoperability, the choice between them will depend on your goals and needs.
EDI EDIs enable large amounts of information to be exchanged as data files via secure protocols, such as SFTP and AS2. It is a popular method for managing file transfers in the shipping industry. MSC EDIs are fully secure, supported and compliant with EDI standards.
APIs support data exchanges of live information in near real-time. They are faster, easier to implement and more flexible. As a result, they can be applied in many complex cases.
