SAP TM 6.0 is a new Transportation Management solution designed specifically for logistics service providers and large shipping companies. SAP Transportation Management 6.0 (SAP TM 6.0) combines order quotation, receipt, and confirmation, transportation planning/dispatching, transportation execution, tracking, and freight charge management in one system. SAP TM supports all modes and means of transport (Sea, air, land and train).

SAP TM serves shippers as well as 3PL or Freight Forwarding industries. The new solution is designed in a way that both sides of a transportation process are covered. Shipper companies often want to minimize transportation costs or improve customer service. From the Shipper’s perspective, you can combine inbound and Outbound Transportation logistically and financially. Third Party Logistics Providers (3PL) or companies involved in freight forwarding on the other side need to look at improving revenue and maximizing their bottom-line. From Logistics Service Provider’s perspective, SAP TM offers higher Transparency on Profitability on both buying and selling side. It supports different types of tendering such as peer to peer, broadcast and open tendering.

SAP TM has capability to adapt plan after execution of Transportation activities started. It has ability to do Delta planning, i.e ability to plan new Transportation demands into existing shipments without re-planning everything.


The objective of this article is to explain how the Shipment request to move goods from one Location to another is Planned and tendering process will be carried out for this Shipment Request.

Business Requirement

The business requires that a customer has ordered to move Goods from one Location to another location. This Shipment request will be entered into the TM manually by TM User. Transportation Planning is carried out by TM Planner by Utilizing Vehicle Resources Optimally under the given constraints and Tendering process will be carried out for this Shipment. Finally Shipment order will be released to the Transportation service Provider to complete the Shipment.

Business scenario Example data

A customer 0000060124 has requested to ship the products from Source Location 3100. Customer is also defined as Location in TM and hence Destination Location is 000060124. A business partner 122 is defined for this Customer, hence consignee will be 122 in the shipment request. A business partner 114 is defined for Shipping point 3100.Hence shipper is 114 and ordering party is also 114. We have a sales organization 50000635, Distribution Channel 10 and division 00 who are responsible for this Shipment Request.
