Descartes and SAP to Develop Supply Chain Logistics Network for Connectivity and Collaboration
Aug 19 15
Descartes and SAP will create a logistics message exchange between Descartes' cloud-based Global Logistics Network (GLN) and the SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) software solution. Supply chain management software users should benefit from shipment visibility and control across the supply chain logistics network and from safer, more seamless logistics operations. This agreement expands on the relationship between the two vendors, which previously consisted of Descartes GLN integration with the SAP Event Management (SAP EM) module. Messaging to track and control shipments, inventory, assets, and people in motion, across air, ocean, and land. GLN takes into account the requirements of the different transportation modes and regional messaging standards for efficient inter-enterprise flow. Descartes' GLN supports commercial, customs, and product information messaging. Filing services for cross-border security filings and transit, export, and import declarations. Integration of Descartes GLN with SAP TM and SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS) will leverage transportation information and provide filing status updates, improving visibility into shipments. Similarly, pre-notification border-crossing clearance will be facilitated. From a joint research and development (R&D) investment perspective, the two SCM software vendors are working together to standardize the integration between the solutions to extend SAP's TM beyond the enterprise to carriers, logistics services providers, and governments and allow for quicker time to value for SAP customers.
