New releases of SAP’s Transportation Management and Extended Warehouse Management solutions will allow customers to extend their supply chain executive platform and trace batches over multiple process steps and locations.

With the integration of the SAP Global Batch Traceability application, the solutions offer enhanced connection to smart devices in the Internet of Things, providing access to more data across the digital supply chain, enabling reduced transportation cost and increases productivity and fulfilment speed.

“These new release show our continued innovation in both the digital supply chain and logistics,” Markus Rosemann, vice president, SAP Digital Logistics, said. “As companies look to digitalise their business, products and processes, we are helping them put supply chain and logistics at the centre of this business transformation.”

In SAP Transportation Management, a single user interface for air cargo security will allow customers to add additional parameters to optimise scheduling processes, which improves freight scheduling and raises productivity, while advanced planning innovations help to optimise flexible vehicle space capacity.

The new version of SAP Extended Warehouse Management offers enhanced analytics for key performance indicators, such as outbound delivery items, service level analysis and warehouse capacity usage, to enable better handling of smaller, more complex and frequent shipments via a new SAP Fiori app. This app allows for flexible picking for multiple customer orders in a single pick run.
