SAP Logistics Business Network (LBN) is an open, secure network which connects you with your business partners in order to optimize logistical cooperation between companies.
SAP Logistics Business Network was developed for companies which use the SAP Supply Chain Logistics Suite. It augments the functions and enables end-to-end transparency and the optimization of logistics processes, which is becoming increasingly important in modern, complex supply chain networks. Thanks to our consulting and implementation expertise, we can use SAP LBN to meet the logistical challenges of our customers:
Inadequate integration of your supply chain processes with your customers and partners
Higher freight costs due to suboptimal selection
Delays and waiting time due to poor route planning
While the SAP Supply Chain Logistics Suite enables comprehensive planning and control of supply chain processes, SAP Logistics Business Network complements and augments these functions and processes and ensures cooperation in freight logistics, shipment tracking (SAP GTT) and material traceability (SAP GBT) across the network.
It provides a networked platform with a single business partner directory which enables holistic planning processes, end-to-end transparency and control of logistics processes, based on real-time information.
The resulting transparency enables companies to optimize internal logistics processes in their warehouses and plants and to plan, manage and communicate continuously with their external partners, including logistics service providers and freight forwarders.
We recommend SAP LBN for customers which have implemented SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) or SAP TM (Transport Management).
Our experience in the implementation of SAP Supply Chain systems in operational logistics helps in the setting up of your logistics network. With SAP LBN you come much closer to an end-to-end view in the network and can therefore provide your customers with the added value which will set you apart from the competition.
ItThe overview across all steps and stations of operational activity in the supply chain network makes it possible for you to manage holistically.
Repeatable backend processes which are based on precise data enable automated cooperation in real time and increase operational efficiency.
The recording of precise data throughout the network enables interactive cooperation in real time, improves decision-making and provides the knowledge needed for planning.
Our implementation expertise ensures seamless integration with the applications of the SAP Supply Chain Logistics Suite. Improved communication increases integration with your customers and partners.
