In our scenario, the transport between the dry port and the seaport is connected with a Freight Order in SAP TM. This means that once the container exits the dry port, the freight order is updated and the information, such as container number and ETA, is forwarded to Yard Logistics for pre-planning at the seaport. The pre-planning includes all necessary activities in detail. Close to arrival of our container in the seaport, a Yard Order would be issued using prior information received from TM to do the final planning, such as preparing a loading slot and planned times for yard activities (e.g. weighing, inspection, temperature control).
An integration of SAP TM and SAP YL therefore means full visibility at every single step of the transport chain without manual monitoring or the necessity of maintaining data in several systems.
