Effectively Managing Transportation Challenges with SAP TM

Today's complex global supply chains present unique transportation management difficulties. By addressing key issues like visibility, planning and compliance, SAP TM enables organizations to streamline operations and gain a strategic advantage.

Increasingly Intricate Supply Chain Networks

With suppliers located worldwide and customers everywhere, coordinating transportation networks is no trivial task. One industry analysis found the average large company now relies on over 50 carriers and interfaces with over 150 trading partners daily. Without integrated technology, the administrative costs of managing these vast networks can hamper profitability.

Critical Need for Real-Time Shipment Insight

Customer expectations for faster deliveries and up-to-date tracking put pressure on shippers to proactively monitor every movement. Research revealed that nearly 80% of supply chain executives rank visibility as a top priority, yet less than 25% have adequate capabilities. Issues from lack of insight include delayed fulfilment, inefficient routing, and damaged customer relationships.

Optimizing Operations Amid Rising Expenses

Transportation costs rose over 30% in the last 5 years alone, inflating already tight budgets. Strict regulations around safety, security and environmental compliance introduce further complexity. The large retailers spend millions annually on logistics non-compliance penalties.
