Does Vizion standardize milestone event names?

Here you can find information on how Vizion standardizes event names.

One way in which Vizion provides clean, usable data is by standardizing thousands of unique event names we receive from all of the different carriers we support. Vizion understands that working with a limited, well-defined set of milestone event names allows you to begin using the Vizion API in a meaningful way from day 1 no matter which carriers you ship with.

The list of standard event names you can expect to receive can be found below. You may still receive events that are not standardized by Vizion as we do receive new event names and event names with contextual information every day. We monitor changes to event names and continually update our mapping so you don't have to.

Note: Some event names are generic (Loaded, Delivered) and do not provide specifics around mode or location. This is due to lack of information provided in the carrier's updates.
