In today's globalized business world, effective transportation management plays a critical role for companies. Choosing the right software solution can help reduce costs, optimize delivery times and increase customer satisfaction.

What is SAP TM?

SAP TM is a comprehensive software solution that helps companies optimize the entire transportation process. From planning and execution to monitoring and billing, SAP TM provides an integrated platform that enables transparency and efficiency in transportation logistics.


The benefits of SAP TM

1. efficient transport planning

SAP TM enables precise planning of transport requests and routes. Using real-time data and powerful algorithms, companies can select the best transport routes to minimize costs and optimize delivery times. This not only contributes to cost savings, but also improves service quality.

2. transparency and real-time monitoring

With SAP TM, companies have a clear overview of the status of their shipments at all times. Real-time data makes it possible to identify delays or problems immediately and take countermeasures. This helps reduce delays and improve customer satisfaction.

3. compliance and sustainability

Regulatory and environmental compliance is critical for businesses. SAP TM provides functionality to monitor and document transportation compliance and support sustainable transportation decisions. This helps companies reduce their environmental footprint while minimizing legal risks.

4. cost control and accounting

SAP TM enables accurate recording of transportation costs and transparent billing. This facilitates cost control and helps companies optimize their budgets.


Migration from LE-TRA to SAP TM

According to SAP SE, Logistics Execution - Transport (LE-TRA) is no longer the targeted architecture In SAP S/4HANA. Instead, the basic version of SAP S/4HANA Transportation Management forms the alternative solution that is already available. The selected functions of SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain for Transportation Management have already replaced the main functions of LE-TRA. Until the end of the Compatibility Pack usage rights lifecycle (end of 2030), both LE-TRA and Transportation Management can be used side-by-side as standalone technical applications in the same SAP S/4HANA database instance. However, there is no integration between them and no data exchange between the two solutions. (Source: SAP Note 2270199)



SAP Transportation Management is a powerful solution that helps companies optimize their transportation processes, reduce costs, increase customer satisfaction, and ensure regulatory compliance. By using SAP TM, companies can take their transportation logistics to the next level and gain a competitive advantage. Users of LE-TRA should consider switching to SAP TM in good time, because LE-TRA can only be used in S/4HANA until the end of 2030.
