Oracle integrates JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and transportation management applications

Latest Integration Enables Customers to Streamline and Better Manage Costs within Domestic and Global Transportation Networks

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Jan. 23, 2008 -- In a continued effort to provide customers with best-in-class supply chain management capabilities, Oracle today announced the integration of Oracle(R) Transportation Management with Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Customers will now be equipped to minimize costs and gain control of transportation and logistics operations while eliminating inefficient and redundant processes.

"Previously, we were required to build our own integration between JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle Transportation Management," said Land O Lakes Vice President 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."

Oracle Transportation Management has been integrated into 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 result is better collaboration with suppliers, service providers, carriers, customers and throughout purchasing, logistics and financial operations. Additionally, this integration accommodates multiple modes of transportation including full truckload, less-than-truckload, parcel and complex multi-leg air, ocean and rail shipments.

Oracle has also continued to make significant enhancements to the shipment planning, rating, dock scheduling and rail movement capabilities within Oracle Transportation Management 5.5, improving both quality and performance. Additionally, Oracle Transportation Management 5.5 offers an improved user experience with enhancements to further streamline user workflows, and configuration and performance-related diagnostic tools.

"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," said Oracle Group Vice President 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 was recently positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner's 2007 Transportation Management Systems (TMS) Magic Quadrant.(1) To view the complete Gartner Magic Quadrant report, compliments of Oracle, visit
