Zapier app

Work with Vizion's Container Tracking API in Zapier

Use Vizion's Zapier app integration to build automations and connections to all 6,000+ apps in Zapier's ecosystem.

Getting started

When you add the Vizion app to a Zap, you will be prompted to 'Sign in'. Enter your API key and choose 'Yes, Continue to Vizion'.


Please note a Production API key is required to use the Zapier integration. Contact support if you have any additional questions about this.

Actions and triggers

A trigger is an event that starts a Zap, and an action is an event a Zap performs. Below are the available triggers and actions within the Vizion app.

Triggers include events such as the creation of new references (New Reference) or update payloads (New Update). Actions involve tasks such as creating new references based on provided input (Create Reference via Carrier Code, Bill of Lading, or ACI).

Example Zap: Write Vizion update payloads to a Google Sheet

To set up a Zap to receive Vizion update payloads and write them to a Google sheet, follow the below steps:

  1. Within your Zap, choose to add a 'Trigger' and search for "Vizion".

Choose trigger image

  1. Select 'New Update' from the set up dropdown. This trigger will run when a new update is available for a Vizion reference.

New update dropdown

  1. Next, add an action that uses Google Sheets. For the spreadsheet you will connect, make sure you name the columns the relevant fields you want to pull from the update payload.

Spreadsheet column names

  1. Under 'App & event', select "Create a spreadsheet row". This will create a new row every time an update is available.

Example Zap: Set up a Zap to create references

To create a reference within a Zap, you can select from the actions shown in the Actions and triggers section. These three actions map to our existing options for how to create a reference. For this example, the input information will come from a Google Sheet, which will then be sent to Vizion to create references:

  1. In your Google Sheet, create the input columns. This Zap will create a reference using the bill of lading so we need the 1. bill of lading 2. callback URL and 3. carrier code.

Spreadsheet column names

  1. As the trigger, select 'New or Updated Spreadsheet Row in Google Sheets'. Select the relevant Google sheet.

New or Updated Spreadsheet Row from dropdown

  1. As the action, select 'Create Reference via Bill of Lading in Vizion'. Map the column names to the fields that will be sent to Vizion.

Map column names to input

  1. As you add new data to the spreadsheet, the Zap will run and trigger a new reference creation.
