2. Connect the FreightDesk Online to the XPO web service.


After login to freightdesk.online/login go to the settings page, the link is listed on the top bar. On the left-hand side of the page, click on connections and then press Add Carrier button then locate and press XPO into the list. The Add Carrier Modal is used to establish the FDO's connection to XPO’s web services. Enter the information asked in the Modal. When you’re done save your connection settings and then test them by clicking on the Test Connection button at the bottom of the modal. A message will display letting you know if the FDO succeeded in establishing a connection to the XPO servers. If you receive an error, confirm the values you entered and try again.
