Transit / Zip Code Data Files

Import transit information into your system by using the transit data files found at the link below, given in four configurations: Instruction File (PDF), Zip Code Listing file (text/csv), Service Center Transit Matrix file (text/csv), and Service Center Information file (text/csv). Contact if these configurations do not suit your needs.

If you have questions or concerns about EDI transactions, please email them to or call the Dayton Freight IT Department at 800.860.5102.

API / Web Services

A suite of web services will allow you to integrate and utilize nearly all functions available on our website in your applications/systems. All services require the use of login credentials.

Before you can use our web services you will need to activate Web Services for your account. From the My Accounts page, select “Update Web Account Information,” select “Yes” for Enable Web Services and enter contact information.
