SAP Business Network 4 Logistics (BN4L)
SAP Transportation Management (TM) is very well complemented by SAP BN4L solution, which enables carrier / LSP collaboration, contracting, booking, visibility and invoicing on all Freight Orders managed in your own TM.
SAP BN4L can be also deployed without SAP TM, as a standalone as its main value add is in one-to-many collaboration nature, onboarded carriers, and GPS visibility on all transport orders.
Shippers can collaborate with carriers on objects such as requests for quotation, tender, booking, shipping instructions, bill of lading. There are many variations of such communications and many pitfalls, so better to have that all fully digital and auditable in case something goes wrong with your carrier / LSP.
