Web services are open standard (XML, SOAP, HTTP etc.) based Web applications that interact with other applications for the purpose of exchanging data. Customers can utilize web services to rate shipments, schedule pickups, trace freight, and more. Since web services are based on open standards such as HTTP and XML-based protocols including SOAP and WSDL, Web services are hardware, programming language, and operating system independent. This means that applications written in different programming languages and running on different platforms can seamlessly exchange data.
