Step 1. Generate an OAuth token.

Authentication for the Freight Marketplace endpoints differs from the authentication system used for our other endpoints.

Begin by authenticating with the Motive Freight Marketplace API. Use the client ID and secret provided to you during onboarding to obtain a token from our OAuth2 endpoint.



There is a limit of 3 requests per second to the token endpoint.

The server responds with an access token and expiration time. The token expires within 2 hours and must be renewed to guarantee the success of all subsequent requests.

After obtaining the OAuth access token, you can start making requests to the Freight Marketplace API.
