Oracle has integrated its Transportation Management solution with its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software suite. Oracle officials say this linkage will allow customers to minimize costs and gain control of transportation and logistics operations while eliminating inefficient and redundant processes.

“We continue to invest in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne product line to provide customers with best-of-class functionality and comprehensive visibility to improve their supply chains,” says Oracle Group VP JD Edwards, Lenley Hensarling. “With this latest integration, customers will be positioned to improve customer service and carrier relations, better manage assets, and benefit from flexible, global fulfillment capabilities.”

Oracle Transportation Management has been integrated with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne sales order management, procurement, and financial management applications to deliver a complete fulfillment execution system. From item availability to final delivery and financial settlement, customers can now streamline transportation planning, execution, and freight payment on a single application. The integration also accommodates multiple modes of transportation including full truckload, less-than-truckload, parcel and complex multi-leg air, ocean, and rail shipments.

“Previously, we were required to build our own integration between JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle Transportation Management,” said Land O Lakes VP, Transformation and ERP, Mark Thome. “The newly delivered integration from Oracle will allow customers to reduce or eliminate their own integration efforts to enable faster implementation at a lower total cost of ownership.”
