The SAP TM Collaboration Portal is an web based component allowing collaboration between TM and the carriers. It covers freight procurement, tendering, execution and finally invoicing/dispute management. So a lot to talk about.
This episode is all about Tendering. Starting with an short explanation what tendering actually is we talk through an end to end tendering process.
All relevant configuration is explained and we also tried to explain some typical use cases for the settings. We discussed the different roles involved, like the tendering manager, the carriers contact person etc.
The different means of communication like email based tendering, the tendering APP and EDI are also visited.
Common issues in config and how to prevent them are also in scope of this episode. Finally we briefly mention the BAdIs involved here.
