SAP Transportation Management is a transport management system that is completely integrated into SAP S/4HANA, but can also be used as an independent system. The software is used for transportation planning and execution and supports users in optimizing the material and goods flow, which reduces transport costs in the long run. Here, it is consistently connected to relevant logistics processes and IT systems, such as SAP EWM (warehouse management) or your ERP system.
FIS supplements these advantages with the project turbo FIS/tm+. With this template solution, which has been specially provided for the introduction of SAP TM, FIS enables you to implement SAP TM particularly conveniently and quickly.
An essential basis for SAP Transportation Management is the SAP HANA database. Due to the availability of real-time data, users can react faster to malfunctions or delivery delays and well-founded decisions based on uniform data can be made at any time.
SAP distinguishes between two functional scopes: "Basic" and "Advanced". "Basic Shipping" is the Transportation Management variant already integrated in SAP S/4HANA and available without additional license costs. It replaces the SAP LE-TRA module existing under SAP ECC. The full SAP TM in the "Advanced" variant can be used in embedded form in SAP S/4HANA or as a local IT solution.
