Industry: Utilities/Energy

Empowering Users. Streamlining Processes.

They supply power utilities, municipal and industrial energy producers, as well as - via downstream retail trade - households with BBQ briquettes, charcoal and more.

Challenges & Solutions

Together, we helped them identify that implementation of SAP Transportation Management (TM), including BRF+, in both the industrial and retail segments and decommissioning non-integrated systems would enhance visibility and transparency across transportation planning and execution processes to improve their supply chain.

With a full scope SAP TM implementation, they were able to enhance order integration, order management, optimizer-based planning, carrier selection and change management, elevating efficiency and excellence to overcome what had been everyday challenges:

  • Successfully take on a high volume of shipments
  • Prepare for various scenarios for inbound and outbound transports
  • Adapt to challenging market environment
Key Benefits
  • Automates recurring activities
  • Reduces manual works
  • Enables users to focus on exceptions rather than standard tasks
  • Brings transparency across end-to-end processes with online integration of orders
  • Enables leaner processes in transportation cost and charge management
“With the introduction of SAP TM, many operational tasks have been eliminated for us. Functions such as transportation planning, cost-based carrier selection, ordering and freight settlement is largely handled by the system. The roles of our dispatchers and billers therefore changed from performing to monitoring. Now they can invest more time in improving processes.”
