StarShip connects to the transportation management system to provide multi-carrier rating, tendering, tracking and pickup requests for LTL shipments. You can print the BOL, package and pallet labels directly from StarShip. Account setup with StarShip requires that you already have a Freightview subscription.

To set up Freightview in StarShip, you will first need to log into your account on Freightview and retrieve the Account API Key.

Get the API Key

  1. Log in to and click your company name in the right-hand corner.
  2. Under the Account Settings menu on the left, select API Keys.
  3. Use the “Copy to Clipboard” functionality to copy the User API key.





Add the Account in StarShip

The next step is to set up your Freightview account in StarShip.


  1. Select Setup > Carrier Interface > Freightview.
  2. Click the Accounts tab, and select the Add... button.

  3. Enter a name that will identify this account in StarShip. It can be any name you want. In the API Key field, paste the User API Key that you copied in the previous steps.
  4. You can enable the option to "Request Shipment Pickup", which allows the shipment (once processed) to be scheduled for pickup via the Internet.

  5. Click OK to add the account.
