Supplier enablement for logistic relationship/ Transport Request in SAP Business network for supply chain collaboration

Now a supplier or third-party logistics provider can assist the buyers in transporting goods from one location to another through transports request by integrating suppliers into the SBN for supply chain collaboration.

To initiate a transport request the logistic provider should have a logistics relationship that allows the information to flow on SAP BUSINESS NETWORK (SBN).

Process flow of Transport request:

  1. A transport request is sent to the logistic provider by the buyer
  2. Supplier/logistic provider can view the request in the fulfillment tab, select Transport request
  3. The supplier will provide the confirmation by accepting or rejecting the request.

Note:

  • Buyers can only send the Transport request
  • Only suppliers with a logistic relationship can view the transportation request/confirmation in fulfilment tab.
