This "How to" should provide you with the necessary steps to implement a working integration with Expeditors from scratch using Babelway.

Setting up your connection

We have live connections using AS2 with Expeditors but we know they can also work with FTP. If you opt for AS2, your basic channel construction should look like this:

Once you have indicated to Expeditors that you will be integrating using AS2 they will expect you to share your AS2 information. In order to provide this, you can begin by creating a dummy AS2 gateway in:


Download the AS2 specifications ZIP in the properties tab of your newly created gateway. It contains all you will need to provide Expeditors.

You will need to receive from Expeditors the following information to complete your configuration:

  1. The AS2 ID Expeditors will use to receive/send your content
  2. The address of the AS2 server Expeditors will be expecting your content to reach
  3. The certificate you need to use to encrypt your content

You will use this information to create your gateway out:


And complete your gateway in:



Configuring your messages

You may wish to send or receive 997 functional acknowledgements for outgoing messages. If this is the case, read up Babelway's 997 implementation:


This documentation is based on our integration projects but we'd love to enhance and update it with your own feedback and experience:
