New Release of SAP® Transportation Management Application to Deliver Profitable Fulfillment Across Global Logistics Networks
SAP NEWSBYTE - - The new release of transportation management software from SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) will be presented and demonstrated in various sessions and exhibits at the SAP Insider Logistics and Supply Chain Management 2011 conference, being held today in Paris. With the 8.0 version of the SAP® Transportation Management (SAP TM) application, companies will be able to improve customer service, reduce logistics costs and manage complexity and compliance across logistics and fulfillment processes. Currently in ramp-up with general availability planned for later this year, the latest version of the application will help companies better plan and execute orders and manage global freight across the supply chain.
Supply chains are increasingly affected by market uncertainties, natural disasters, rising fuel costs and complex logistics and fulfillment environments across an expanding global network of ports of call and warehouses. Drawing from more than 20 years of experience in transportation orchestration, SAP TM allows companies to plan, consolidate and optimize inbound and outbound shipments while considering real-world constraints, costs and penalties. The application also enables companies to automate transportation tendering, execution, tracking and settlement processes, and manages international trade and hazardous material handling compliance in the transportation process.
Additionally, the solution helps companies:
Reduce logistics costs by improving inventory management and increasing asset utilization across the logistics network
Improve customer service by having the right products in the right place at the right time
Create and execute transportation plans with flexibility to support changes as market conditions demand
Integration of transportation management capabilities with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution SAP® ERP Financials gives companies better control and visibility to help ensure accurate freight carrier invoicing and consignee freight billing
Manage, monitor and continuously improve transportation processes across an extended supply network with enhanced network-wide visibility, collaboration and compliance
