The 8.0 release of the SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) application is now available across the Middle East.

The new release, unveiled in April this year, features expanded logistic and fulfilment management capabilities.

The first customers around the world to implement the SAP TM include Abudawood in Saudi Arabia, Artoni, Cargill, CH Guenther and Owens Corning.

"With SAP Transportation Management, we're able to better deploy our 100-vehicle fleet, manage numerous carriers, reduce order and inventory cost, and optimise visibility and delivery of all orders," said Hazem Mohammed El Banna, CIO at Abudawood, a sales and distribution services provider. "Our 8.0 release deployment went live last week after a smooth implementation project executed in less than four months. As we operate in emerging markets, we need a solution that gives us speed and agility in delivering for customers, but also simplicity and compliance in managing the complexities of local markets."

SAP TM is designed to help companies efficiently, quickly and accurately orchestrate the movement of goods and create an environment that simplifies, automates and interconnects transportation processes, improves order management, planning and consolidation and optimises inbound and outbound shipments.

The application also features automated transportation tendering, execution, tracking and settlement processes, as well as helping ensure compliance to international trade regulations and in handling hazardous material.
