How it works

The Drupal API Store allows APMT customers to register applications and in return they receive an API key which they can use to connect to the APIs offered by APMT.

When purchased, the APIs need to be configured by a development team to integrate with the APMT customer’s internal systems and API endpoints, via the API management framework – Apigee. Once this has been completed, customers can pull container data directly into their internal systems, saving both time and effort for the customer.

In addition, to drive sales of the APIs, the Drupal API store also allows content editors to produce marketing material.

API Store benefits

  • Saves manual work on searching for container status

  • Container status is fed directly into internal systems

  • The gathering of container data is automated

  • Handles large volumes of data

  • Near real-time data means the latest information is available in the supply chain. This means terminals will know when cargo is available for its next step in its journey. This enables better planning


API Store overview

  • Built in Drupal 8 CMS

  • Apigee Integration (Utilising the Apigee Kickstart distribution)

  • Out of box templates and modules were redesigned to match the look and feel of the APM Terminals main site

  • Stripe payment gateway integration

  • Hosted with Pantheon

  • Akamai integration for security


Sitecore vs Drupal

Sitecore is an enterprise grade licensed digital experience platform. Being licensed means, unlike a Drupal website, it's paid for. Drupal is open source. It's a free content management system maintained by the Drupal community.

Both systems deliver flexibility, security, and scalability. The difference being that Sitecore comes with many out-of-the-box tools and features. Drupal, on the other hand, relies on external integration to deliver more functionality. This can place a heavy load on the system and could incur higher development costs when it comes to maintenance.

For large scale projects that deliver enhanced digital experiences, Sitecore is the CMS of choice. For smaller projects, like the API Store, Drupal was the perfect fit.
