On February 5th, 2020, the IGZ Single-Day Forum SAP Transportation Management took place for the fifth time in the Konkresszentrum at Burg Falkenberg. Logistics managers, shipping managers, dispatchers and IT decision-makers were once again able to convince themselves of the performance of the SAP standard software in the area of ??transport planning and transport control.
With SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) standard software and the real-time capable supply chain execution platform, SAP offers you, the user, the basis for a smooth interaction of your warehouse and transport logistics. Direct networking with the proven SAP warehouse management modules for intralogistics in conjunction with the transport / CEP service providers or your own vehicle fleet enables you to gain competitive advantages, increase the level of service and reduce transport costs.
The new ERP generation SAP S/4HANA is now also being used in transport logistics. As already known, the previous SAP ERP modules LE-TRA and SD-Transport will only be available for a few more years (until 2027). Users of these modules are faced with the challenge of mapping these functions in the new S/4HANA environment – and at the same time ensuring a further increase in efficiency in logistics in order to remain competitive. How does it work? IGZ introduced solutions and migration paths to the participants.
In addition, IGZ offered the interested visitors some sophisticated lectures from SAP TM experts as well as various live demos. As part of the TM Single-Day Forum, an informative excursion to the IGZ Innovation Center took place again this year. Our customer Hoffmann Group gave a lecture on "LogisticCity – Die leistungsstärkste Werkzeuglogistik der Welt" and the mapping of a global transport network in SAP TM.
SAP inspired the participants with an exciting and informative lecture on the topic of SAP strategy for transport management.
We thank all participants and speakers for the great interest and the numerous good discussions.
