Information on the company

Telematics, track and trace – for efficient transportation management

According to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), some 2.7 million trucks were registered in the country in 2015 – transporting over three billion metric tons of goods. These vehicles made over 400 million trips, but over one third were without a payload – creating an unnecessary burden for drivers, vehicles, infrastructure and the environment. Moreover, these empty movements generate significant costs for freight forwarders.

SAP Transportation Management

To help logistics service providers, freight forwarders and shippers streamline and automate their processes, T-Systems offers them the power of SAP Transportation Management. This scalable, cloud-based solution is hosted in a highly secure data center located in Germany. With just a single, end-to-end application, users gain full control of both commercial processes – such as order management – and logistics tasks, such as vehicle track-and-trace. Moreover, a flexible, pay-per-use pricing model gives them total cost visibility.
