Tame The Challenges Associated With Transportation Management
Continually changing conditions in the transportation management such as delivery chains, guaranteed service levels, smaller order quantities and a permanent cost pressure lead to the processes along the supply chain becoming more complex. Required software components for the extension of existing transportation management processes are often integrated over subsystems in existing system landscapes. This is particularly the case with transport management systems which are often connected to ERP systems via interfaces. The disadvantages for transportation management solutions resulting from these system breaks are far-reaching. They extend from the increased expenditures for system maintenance and interface administration to redundant master data management, suboptimal process design through to the increased risks through inconsistencies, errors during data transfers and system failures as well as a lack of process transparency. Each individual point results in costs that could be minimized with a comprehensive representation of transport management processes in a single system.
