SAP TO OFFER TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
Software giant SAP AG announced plans to offer transportation planning and
vehicle scheduling applications to its supply chain management software customers,
beginning in February.
SAP will use dispatcher software made by California-based ILOG Inc. ILOG also
provides the transportation optimization software in SAP’s Advanced Planner and Optimizer,
or APO, suite of supply chain products. SAP is offering APO as part of its mySAP.com sales
SAP said the new software will allow SAP users to “simultaneously
consider various transportation constraints to optimize and plan
transportation through their own or independent carriers.”
SAP, the world’s largest supplier of enterprise resource planning
software, rocked the supply chain software market last year when it
announced it was developing the APO product.
