Important API changes
Lead time does not only depend on the recipient’s postal code, but also the address itself.
For example, two different addresses on the same postal code can have different lead time. We have therefore added an addressLine field, which allows lead time to be calculated based on both postal code and street address. For this to work, it is important that recipients fill out a valid street address.
By using our Address API, the address the recipients fill inn can be pre-validated, which will ensure more accurate lead times.We therefore recommend using the Address API in combination with Shipping Guide API.
There are several services that are affected by this new field:
1000, 1988, 3500, 5000, 1736, 5600, 0330, 0332, 0349, 3570, 3584
The event statuses ARRIVED_COLLECTION and ARRIVED_DELIVERY are not valid anymore, and therefore have been removed from the Tracking API.
Starting 1 August 2022, Tracking API version v1 will be deprecated and the requests will be automatically forwarded to the latest version, v2. It is not a breaking change. In the new version you will have access to many more fields.
For customers requesting environmental data in Shipping Guide API, a link to an environmental logo that can be used in checkout is now being returned in the
guiInformation part of the response. Note that the
WithGuiInformation field must therefore be set to true. The environmental data description text has also been extended to cover 5800 Pakke til hentested and 0340 Pickup Parcel/0342 Pickup Parcel Bulk when sent to Norway.
