Why use an SAP add-on for logistics optimisation in SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA?

SAP solutions are known for their broad coverage and adaptability to meet end-to-end business process needs, which makes them the preferred choice by many companies. This comes with the downside that some industry-specific requirements cannot always be covered in detail with standard SAP functionality.

This is where an add-on like ORTEC for SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA can help. It is a much better alternative compared to complex custom developments or additional investments into advanced SAP Transportation Management.

Do you have questions about SAP transport management? We have the answers.

With ORTEC, you reduce transport means and planning times, increase vehicle utilisation and reliably comply with replenishment processes.

And you can do this with reduced complexity, high transparency and complete integration in SAP ERP and SAP S/4 HANA.

If, for example, you do not have your own fleet of vehicles, but the greater part of your goods has to be planned and scheduled, our transportation planning solutions can optimise your transports according to individual mathematical algorithms in such a way that
  • the utilisation of the vehicles is increased
  • the number of empty kilometers is reduced
  • and in the end the scheduling time is considerably reduced.

This is part of the standard process in our SAP transport management systems. As soon as the sales order, the utilisation of the container is automatically planned in the background and graphically displayed in the sales order.

There are even customers who monitor the utilisation of the container live on a second screen while the order is being entered, so that they can then possibly offer the customer special offers or replenishment items.

ORTEC’s SAP integrated Loading Optimisation is a very powerful tool that is used in many cross-industry sectors.

ORTEC generates loading proposals based on SAP documents (deliveries, sales orders, purchase orders, etc.) – directly also with a graphical loading image in SAP. This graphic is also changeable, i.e. adjustments can actually be made in the truck or container by “drag & drop”.

Our SAP transport management solutions are integrated and available in SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA respectively.

Our transport management system is also modular. The optimisation tools for shipping carton, pallet or hold are either available as a single module or can be combined with the desired individual functions.
