Step 1. Get a list of the carriers who have consented to expose their Freight Visibility to you.

Brokers use the Freight Visibility APIs to track the vehicle locations of their respective carriers, provided that the carriers have created permissions for the broker to track the carrier's vehicles.

Begin by retrieving a list of all Motive carriers who have integrated Freight Visibility and consented to offer you visibility. Those will be the carriers for whom you can create load tracking events.

The response contains a list of carriers you can track. For each carrier, two IDs are provided:

  • company_id: Motive’s ID for that carrier
  • dot_id: Federal ID for that carrier

Use either ID for Step 2.
