SAP S/4HANA TM is the Transportation Management System intended to run all aspects of transportation processes within the company, including transportation planning and optimization, freight tendering and charge management.

SAP S/4HANA TM covers the full array of modes of transport (air, ocean, rail and road) and is designed for both Shippers and Logistics Service Providers. With SAP TM you can increase you business productivity in ways to manage transportation requirements with more efficiency and less redundancy through automation and electronic collaboration – from order entry to settlement.

With SAP TM you can also improve end-to-end visibility and service by Lower spend on expedites and overhead with electronic tracking and tracing, cross-system document flow, freight consolidation, and data-driven rate negotiation.

With the release of S/4HANA 1909 SAP customers have been able to run SAP Transportation Management functionality on the same instance as their ERP solution. In other words, it is no longer necessary to have a separate set of systems/servers/databases for SAP Transportation, as is the case with the classic side-by-side deployment option of SAP TM that we have seen to date.


The main advantages of S/4HANA TM can be summarized as follows:

  • Smaller database and hardware footprint
  • Reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to smaller replication and monitoring effort
  • Enhanced user experience leveraging S/4HANA "look and feel" and Fiori UI
  • Remove the need to duplicate ERP customer, vendor and material master data into business partners and products in TM, thereby removing the need for the Core Interface (CIF). ERP and TM share a single set of harmonized master data objects.
  • Real-time embedded analytics
  • Integration with new S/4HANA Enterprise Management for managing transportation-related equipment


Uplatz provides this detailed SAP TM course you will learn how to improve cash flow for freight transportation, reduce unplanned overcharges and eliminate invoice errors by settling costs accurately and automating accrual generation, auditing, and charge tracking. 

On completion of SAP S/4HANA TM course you will receive a Course Completion Certificate issued by Uplatz.
