TM in SAP S/4HANA 2023: Maintain Carbon Emission on Vehicle Type
Dear friends of TM,
Everyone is talking about green logistics, and so do we! With TM embedded in SAP S/4HANA 2023, we added new capabilities for calculating and showing the carbon footprint of a transport.
In this blog post we will talk about how the carbon emissions are maintained at a vehicle type.
If you have a fleet with different types of vehicles, you will obviously have maintained different vehicle types in customizing. They could be differentiated by loading weight, truck manufacturer or the particular model. In any case, the carbon emissions will differ. So, to have a realistic carbon footprint of a road transport you need to maintain the carbon emissions for the particular vehicle type you’re using. Furthermore, it matters a lot whether the truck runs with full load or empty.
And this can be maintained at the vehicle type like shown here:
You see, you can maintain the carbon emissions for full and empty load. And you maintain the weight and distance unit in which they are captured.
And those values will then be considered in the following processes as e.g. the optimization during transportation planning.
Thanks for your interest in this topic and I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
