Transport management for national and international use


The demands on transport logistics are increasing with the growing complexity of the supply chain. In a globalized and networked world, those involved in the logistics chain need solutions for national and international transportation management. With SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM), we are able to provide end-to-end support for your transportation processing, from order acceptance to transportation planning and execution. Additionaly, we support freight calculation and billing to facilitate your freight cost management. SAP TM is part of the SAP Supply Chain Execution Platform (SAP SCE) and offers far-reaching solutions for your transport processes that go beyond the LE-TRA offering from SAP ERP.

Our range of services extends to process consulting and solution development from transport planning to freight invoicing. As a ramp-up partner, abat is involved in the further development of SAP TM. As a customer, you benefit from this experience during customizing and implementation. An implementation via Rapid Deployment Solutions is an interesting possibility for standardized processes to optimize your implementation in terms of time and costs.

In addition to implementing SAP TM Standard, we develop add-ons to further improve your internal processes on the software side. This includes an app for mobile devices that enables status feedback from your drivers to SAP TM via SAP Event Management. This allows you to monitor the complete execution of your transport process and react early to unexpected events, such as traffic jams or accidents, which can lead to delivery delays.

We are happy to help you implement close-to-standard solutions or define customized strategies for your transport process.
