In addition to meeting a demanding set of functional requirements, transportation management systems must also meet the highest standards of mission critical systems in terms of availability, performance, scalability, and security. This whitepaper describes how Oracle Transportation Management in combination with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud provide the optimal solution for today’s transportation management challenges.
Oracle Transportation Management enables companies to manage their transportation networks on a global basis in terms of supply chain flows (outbound finished goods, inbound supplies, interfacility/company shipments, service parts, reverse logistics, etc.), modes of transport (truck, air, ocean and rail), and geographic area (regional and international). Oracle Transportation Management provides simultaneous support for multiple languages, currencies, units of measure and business functions that may vary by business unit and geographic region. As a result, companies can support the requirements of their global operations while reaping the efficiencies provided by a single transportation management solution.
