LeverX perfects the movement of goods, while leveraging the powers of SAP TM
An European transport company.
Our customer turned to us for a tricky three-way integration of the SAP TM system with third-party solutions.
Our team integrated SAP TM with PTV, a geographical service provider, on one side, and two telematics solutions — FleetBoard and Dynafleet — on the other.
Products and Services
In terms of business objectives, the required functionality was targeted at:
- Improving fleet safety.
- Reducing operating costs thanks to effective fleet management.
- Boosting service excellence through precise vehicle tracking, providing exact arrival times, and organizing quick re-route in case of delays.
Geocoding is a core component of mapping and vehicle routing and optimization tasks. When the company enters addresses, geocoding converts them into longitude and latitude coordinates. Precise geographic locations on digital maps are essential data for SAP TM because it is a prerequisite for distance calculation.
This option provides precise route planning. Defining waypoints enables detailed route creation.
Calculating toll costs
It was one more business requirement. Thanks to the toll calculation feature, transportation costs could be reduced significantly.
Time and distance estimation
It helps optimize routes for any fleet size.
Besides a range of services, PTV offers visualizing geographic data on digital maps.
FleetBoard and Dynafleet
As for FleetBoard and Dynafleet, these telematics solutions deal with defining the truck’s current location (geographical coordinates), thus ensuring excellent truck navigation. Also, the integration with these services lets users read the tachograph records. A tachograph is a device that counts the vehicle’s speed and distance and monitors the driver’s activity.
TOP SAP Company
In the course of integration processes, our team conducted the following development improvements:
Geo map component enhancements
Because PTV, not SAP PM, provides a map, we arranged for the objects to be displayed on the map correctly.
This is a standard TM application for planning transportation. We have made refinements of this solution as well.
Thanks to third-party services integrated into the customer’s SAP TM and our assistance during the project, the logistics company now feels the full force of newly gained functionality:
- Toll cost calculation
- Estimation of time and distance
- Map layers
- Tracking of actual location and drivers’ activities
This guarantees truck route optimization, getting precise traffic and truck data, planning and executing safe journeys, as well as additional preconditions for significant cost savings.
