SAP Transportation Management challenges

SAP TM is designed specifically for companies which use SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP to optimize their internal business processes and to increase their output. In an end-to-end supply chain, transport processes become increasingly important. These are some of the challenges:

  • Higher shipment volume 

  • More and more vehicles 

  • Narrow time windows and complex transport chains 

 

  • Generally higher traffic volume 

  • Shortage of qualified personnel 

Why you should use SAP Transportation Management

In SAP Transportation Management (TM) you have available a performant software solution with which you can manage all of the tasks of service-oriented and cost-optimized transport logistics.

 

From order management to transport planning and scheduling, operational transport monitoring and invoicing, to the provision of key performance indicators for the analysis and control of your processes. The result is a self-learning network which can even schedule orders automatically. 

 

The system is suitable for the management of both single-stage and large, multi-stage transport networks - from the first to the last mile.  Shipments using the company’s own fleet, the use of freight forwarders, full-load shipments, groupage shipments or bulk shipments are all supported. 

 

The modular and individually configurable Transport Management solution can be easily integrated into existing SAP landscapes. With regular system updates and the possibility of customizing, SAP TM already meets today the dynamic requirements of tomorrow, such as supporting autonomous vehicles or digital freight matching.

For our customers running SAP worldwide, it makes the most sense to completely integrate their supply chain processes on the SAP platform. This means every warehouse and every transport management solution needs to be SAP-based. As an international company, we can deploy SAP supply chain execution for these solutions on a global scale. That’s something not a lot of our competitors can do.
