Connect your software systems, enhance functionality, and exchange data seamlessly with Hapag-Lloyd.
An API, or Application Programming Interface, is like a translator between different software applications. It helps them talk to each other and share information. It's similar to how people use a common language to communicate and understand each other.
Imagine you have two apps on your phone. One app needs some specific information or wants to use a feature from the other app. The API is like a special code that allows them to connect and exchange data. It defines how they should talk to each other, what kind of information they can share, and how they should ask for things.
APIs can also be compared to a menu in a restaurant. The menu lists all the dishes available, along with descriptions and prices. Similarly, an API provides a menu of options that developers can use to interact with a particular software system. It tells them what functions they can use, what kind of data they can get, and how to ask for it.
Overall, APIs make it possible for different apps or software systems to work together smoothly, just like translators or menus help people communicate and understand each other in different situations.
