Oracle Transportation Management(OTM) integration with Oracle Purchasing

OTM-PO Integration enable you to manage inbound freight from your suppliers.

The integration of Oracle Transportation Management enables you to plan and track the progress and status of inbound purchase order-related shipments.

Purchase orders created in Oracle Purchasing are communicated to Oracle Transportation Management after approval, enabling you to execute (rate, route, track, and reconcile) the related shipment.

Purchase order changes are also communicated to Oracle Transportation Management upon re-approval in Oracle Purchasing.

As part of the shipment process, Oracle Transportation Management enables suppliers to submit "ready to ship" information.

After shipping takes place, purchasing agents access carrier-provided shipment status updates within OTM. After goods are delivered, invoices for freight payment are collected and processed for payment.
