BlueGrace Logistics LTL Freight


This document outlines the process to connect your BlueGrace Logistics account to ShipperHQ to obtain live rates associated with your BlueGrace account.


Before you begin, please ensure you have the following:

  • Your BlueGrace Client ID
  • Your BlueGrace Client Secret
You’ll need to contact your BlueGrace Account Sales Rep to request credentials if you do not already have them. Let your rep know that you’ll be using ShipperHQ to connect to the BlueGrace Rating API. Note that if you have multiple business units (e.g. for reporting or rating) you’ll need unique credentials for each one. You’d also need to set up multiple instances of BlueGrace in ShipperHQ, one per set of credentials if you wish ShipperHQ to use different credentials for different scenarios (e.g. multiple warehouses).
