First, the expansion of supply chains in search of new sources of supply and new markets for finished goods has resulted in transportation networks that are more global and complex in nature. These global transportation networks are more prone to disruptions, longer lead times, increased transit time variability, and higher transportation expenses. Second, fuel cost volatility and sustainability initiatives have brought greater focus to transportation processes as companies search for both cost and carbon footprint efficiencies. The net result is a heightened need for transportation management solutions that enable companies to continuously optimize their transportation networks, provide near real-time visibility to in-transit shipments, and support operations anywhere in the world. Gartner’s recent transportation market trends report described the situation as “a golden opportunity” in the transportation management system market 1 . Oracle Transportation Management enables companies to meet these supply chain challenges. Case studies from Oracle Transportation Management customers have documented the following business benefits: (1) 23% reduction in freight costs; (2) 95% reduction in expedited shipments; and (3) 99% on-time delivery performance. In addition to meeting a demanding set of functional requirements, transportation management systems must also meet the highest standards of mission critical systems in terms of availability, performance, scalability, and security. This whitepaper describes how Oracle Transportation Management in combination with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud provide the optimal solution for today’s transportation management challenges.   1  Gartner, Chad Eschinger, C. Dwight Klappich, “ Market Trends: A Golden Opportunity in the  Transportation Management System Market, 2012-2016 ”, September 24, 2012.    Oracle Transportation Management on Oracle Engineered Systems 3 Oracle Transportation Management Introduction Oracle Transportation Management enables companies to minimize freight costs, optimize on-time delivery service levels, support sustainability initiatives, and create flexible transportation business processes within their supply chain networks.
