SAP TM provides real-time tracking and monitoring of vehicles and shipments through event management, allowing your business to respond quickly to any disruptions or delays. This will help you reduce waste within your processes, avoiding unnecessary transportation and emissions whilst subsequently leading to cost reductions by limiting the risk of demurrage, storage, and port fees. The solution will also generate reports and analytics on transportation performance, allowing your business to identify areas for improvement and make data-driven decisions for peak efficiency.
Compliant, but cost-effective
With the use of Vehicle Scheduling and Routing Optimisation in SAP TM, you can assign freight units to capacities in a cost-effective way whilst adhering to constraints which can be categorised as soft or hard - depending on their importance. The constraints can consist of pre-determined or custom criteria like, a vehicle’s weight capacity, dangerous goods and ADR requirements or even with, SAP’s new feature, driving time and working hours. It is crucial to ensure compliant due diligence within your transportation processes due to the introduction of new and evolving legal instruments and legislation like the recent EU Mobility Package which surrounds the regulation of cabotage, rest-times and driving hours.
