An end-to-end Transportation Management Solution like SAP TM enables this by providing you the ability to meet client expectations, while offering improved visibility into the entire transport operations. SAP TM helps you improve service levels and resource availability, and reduces transportation costs by optimizing shipments. It helps you calculate and settle freight and shipment costs with greater accuracy, thereby minimizing the chances of disputes. Furthermore, SAP TM helps you improve regulatory compliance with reliable access to denied party and embargo lists for international shipping.
The Transportation Management- Accelerated Deployment Solution (TM-ADS) from TCS can help you realize these benefits of SAP TM faster and at a lower cost.
