Maintenance

Whilst FreightExchange intends that the Website and APIs should be available 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, it is possible that on occasions the Website or APIs may be unavailable for
maintenance or development activities.

Non-critical maintenance activities will be scheduled on:

  • Mondays to Fridays between 22:00 and 06:00 (AEST time)
  • Weekends between 16:00 Saturday and 06:00 Monday (AEST time)

If we have to interrupt services longer than we would normally expect, we will use reasonable
endeavours to notify all users when such maintenance will be carried out.

Exclusions

This SLA excludes all third party systems.

We will use our best endeavours to provide you with up to date information about any outages
that might affect your ability to use FreightExchange. This information will be available via
our status page.

Definitions

API
means any API published on
www.dev.freightexchange.com.au
for which you hold a valid API key.
Production System
means any FreightExchange website or API excluding testing environments.
Service
means the online freight management services made available (as may be
changed or updated from time to time by FreightExchange) via the Website or our APIs.
Testing Environments
means any FreightExchange website or API provided for systems testing
only.
Third party system
means any system owned and maintained by companies other than
FreightExchange, including all carrier booking & tracking systems.

Uptime Calculation for APIs

Total API Requests
is the total number of quoting, booking or tracking requests made by you to
the FreightExchange API during a billing month.
Failed API Requests
are the total number of requests within Total API Requests that return an
Error Code or do not respond within 2 minutes. API requests that fail due to a third party
carrier outage, are not included in this total.
Monthly Uptime Percentage
is calculated as Total API Requests less Failed API Requests divided by Total API Requests
multiplied by 100.

Monthly Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:

Monthly Uptime % = (Total API Requests – Failed API
Requests) / Total API Requests x 100

Uptime Calculation for Website

Monthly Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:

Monthly Uptime % = (total hours Website was available for the
Monthly Period) / (the total hours for the Monthly Period)
