SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) supports you in all activities connected with the physical transportation of goods from one location to another. You can use SAP TM to perform the following activities, for example:

     Create forwarding orders for your ordering parties

    Transfer orders and deliveries from an SAP system

    Create freight bookings

    Plan the transportation and select carriers

    Tender transportation services

    Dispatch and monitor the transportation

    Calculate the transportation charges for both the ordering party and the supplier side

    Consider foreign trade and dangerous goods regulations

 You can use SAP TM to create and monitor an efficient transportation plan that fulfills the relevant constraints (for example, service level, costs, and resource availability). You can determine options to save costs and to optimize the use of available resources. You can react to transportation events and find solutions to possible deviations from the original transportation plan.
