January 29, 2021
detailed new logistics capabilities within Oracle
Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM). The updates to Oracle
Transportation Management (OTM) and Oracle Global Trade Management (GTM),
a part of Oracle Cloud SCM, help customers reduce costs, make better
planning decisions, and improve customer experience.
The new capabilities within Oracle Transportation Management and
Oracle Global Trade Management include:
Rules of Origin Qualification: Helps customers comply with rules of origin criteria across hundreds of different trade agreements.
Connected Logistics: Helps customers better predict and manage shipments
and inventory, while monitoring location and conditions (such as
temperature and humidity), by connecting logistic flows between Oracle
Transportation Management, Oracle Warehouse Management (WMS), and Oracle
Internet of Things (IoT).
3D Load Configuration Editor: Provides customers with full flexibility in managing container-based shipments and how they are loaded.
New Oracle Logistics Digital Assistant Capabilities: A new accelerated access experience and enhanced conversational interface helps Oracle Transportation Management and Oracle Global Trade Management customers easily access all shipment information and send requests while on the go.
Oracle Transportation Management, we've been able to get almost
immediate results on the rate changes that impact our shipping costs,”
said Matt Kirchner, senior logistics analyst, White Cap (formerly HD
Supply). “We utilize Oracle Transportation Management for export lane
cost-by-carrier analysis, and when we're comparing the different costs,
we're able to easily try different carrier combinations and compare the
planned cost versus the lowest cost. We've found that on average, we're
able to reduce costs by approximately 6 percent.”
