SAP introduces two new management systems
SAP SE has announced that the 9.3 versions of the SAP® Transportation Management (SAP TM) and the SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) applications will now be available.
These releases strengthen integration between logistics processes by introducing transit warehousing features for service providers that integrate warehousing and transportation at logistics hubs.
This will benefit supply chain managers by reducing costs and increasing efficiency through faster order fulfilment and logistics and an improved utilisation of assets.
SAP TM 9.3 offers customers holistic, end-to-end logistics process support, which consists of integrated planning, orchestration, execution, tracking and settlement of the physical movement of goods across all modes of transport.
The application has been extended to support the transit warehouse scenario, with partner-integrated customs and security filing software for logistics service providers. The application also provide group company logistics software, which can enable internal logistics operations to effectively act like a service provider.
Further enhancements include strategic freight management, load and pallet building as well as resource planning integration for better visibility and planning of the container fleet.
The introduction of transit warehouse functionality allows logistics companies to manage complex movements of goods from origin to consolidation points to destination. It supports unloading, consolidating and loading packages rather than products. Further enhancements include billing warehouse services for logistics service providers and shippers who contract warehouse services.
Hans Thalbauer, Senior Vice President, extended supply chain at SAP, said: "Our latest logistics solution releases are yet another example of providing innovative and best-in-class capabilities for warehouse management and transportation as well as track-and-trace scenarios. We see an accelerated adoption of our solutions by customers around the world, who leverage the predefined 'model company' approach for fast implementation."
