Using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Transportation Management System
Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne’s Transportation Management Module makes it easier to track and improve the distribution process between suppliers and customers. In this blog post, I explain its useful capabilities.
The Oracle JD Edwards (JDE) EnterpriseOne (E1) Transportation Management module tracks and manages to movement of materials and components from suppliers to customers. As a crucial part of the Supply Chain Management set of modules, its features and capabilities can help streamline your operations for faster and easier distribution.
With the Transportation Management module, users can:
create shipments by selecting appropriate freight services
calculate and track shipping route and rates for different transportation modes
calculate freight charges by freight classification level
consolidate shipments by customer, geographical area
plan warehouse operations around shipping schedules
manage shipping documents
evaluate the carrier performance
maintain related information, such as vehicle licenses and records, invoices, and billing
Some of the benefits of implementing JDE Transportation Management are:
Decrease freight costs
- Automated routing and rating
- Shipment consolidation and load building
- Freight audit capabilities
Improve transportation information visibility
- Transportation cost visibility and allocation
- Improved transport information tracking and availability
- Improve on-time delivery performance
Central source for all supply chain related data
Additionally, when using any of the transportation types (inbound or outbound), users receive continuous feedback to help them improve their shipping process, cycle time, inventory, and customer satisfaction.
In my opinion, the Transportation Management module is a good solution for businesses that depend on the transport of materials or finished goods to manage their fleet, but do not consider shipping to be their core source of revenue. While the module does require some information upon setup – such as workday calendars, transportation constants and tracking numbers – such requirements usually are not very complex.
Any business can benefit from the Transportation Management module’s easy integration with the rest of EnterpriseOne, and its out-of-the-box usability that guides users through a simple setup process that activates functionality.
