Solution Capabilities

Transportation Requirements Management

Centralized transportation requirements management, from entry to final settlement

SAP software supports a cohesive requirements management process that integrates transportation order processing with order-to-cash and order-to-pay processes, providing early visibility for planning purposes. You can manage requirements received either manually or electronically, regardless of the source. Stakeholders can receive and create order-based or delivery-based requirements. This centralization reduces redundant tasks, enabling you to focus on value-added activities.

Freight Planning and Optimization

Optimization techniques to balance freight costs and constraints

With SAP software you can plan, consolidate, and optimize freight shipments while considering applicable limitations and constraints, costs, and penalties. You can plan domestic and international shipments across all modes in a single environment – both inbound and outbound. Built-in compliance capabilities help address international trade and hazardous goods management requirements. Optimized planning helps reduce spend while maintaining expected levels of customer service.

Freight Tendering

Creating an automated environment for freight tendering

SAP software enables you to tender a freight order to one or many carriers using automated, business rules–driven processes. It supports both an automated, broadcasted freight request for quotation (RFQ) and manual, peer-to-peer direct tendering. Carrier assignments can be based on templated carrier optimization and ranking techniques, or they can make use of preferred carrier information. This automation helps you reduce operating costs and improve operational performance.

Freight Order Forwarding and Settlement

Accurate and timely freight settlements

With SAP software, you can manage and settle freight agreements as they relate to both carriers and customers. Comprehensive freight cost management capabilities support the management of freight agreements as well as tariffs and charges. You can resolve disputes faster and in a collaborative way with business partners. These capabilities can be integrated with financials software for freight auditing, carrier payment, customer invoicing, internal settlement, and cost distribution.

Transportation Execution and Monitoring

Transportation execution and monitoring of the transportation

Transportation operations are critical to putting your transportation plans into action. Key to these activities is managing the communication with your carriers, dispatching and tracking freight orders, and maintaining documentation, including printing and reporting. Full integration to warehouse and international customs and compliance processes results in faster, more dynamic, and responsive logistics execution and improved cargo handling.
