    OTM's Visibility Power Leveraged with Integrated Digital Tracking Solutions
    Antti Ilovuori, UPM

    The rise of mobile applications continues to transform the landscape to an always-on network of connected devices, extending its reach even into the cab of the truck. But what are the best options for shippers already using OTM to harness mobility and leverage OTM's visibility power. A global leader in renewable bio and forest industries, UPM needed integrated mobile solutions to communicate with its network of more than 300 carriers for shipment visibility and proof of delivery. Transparent access to real time tracking events is distributed from OTM through UPM system landscape. This case study session will illustrate UPM's gains in customer service and logistics via real time tracking.

    Gasoline and Fuel Delivery Using OTM Bulk Functionality
    Albert Drummond, Oracle Development

    This new capability to be able to dedicate equipment or compartments such as in bulk tanker trucks to specific chemicals or commodities opens the door to solve delivery problems that we not possible before. After working with a customer who delivers chemicals on equipment with dedicated tankers, it was decided to make this new improvement. Not only is it applicable to liquid delivery, the changes were designed to vastly simplify the ability to dedicate equipment to specific uses. This is a game changer... very simple... and very effective.

    "Service Provider" Friendly OTM
    Rajiv Jegannathan, The Wonderful Company

    This presentation will walk through how OTM and OTM Service provider portal can be setup to increase overall user experience and productivity for Planner, Service provider and Freight pay auditor user roles.

    How OTM can be a value add for not just the shippers but also to their service providers.
    We will walk through how we can automate various setups involved in on-boarding service provider in Oracle EBS/OTM
    How Wonderful benefited by setting up the right tolerance and approval rules and achieved significantly high auto approval of EDI invoices. Auto approval means on-time payment to the carrier!
    How to leverage OTM Service provider portal to make it a self-service for service provider instead of multiple emails/calls to planners? Service provider might reach out to planner for several details, most of which can be made available in OTM Service provider portal/OTM Mobile App.
    Ensure service provider has all the required information so that they don't miss any pickups in case of consolidation/multi-stops and ensure they deliver on time.

    We will also discuss and put forth our recommendation on how to make OTM Service provider portal even better with few enhancements.

    Uberization of OTM
    Indraneel Chakraborty, KPIT

    In most cities, the transportation industry works on an adhoc basis. Currently the shippers/3PL/4PL are not able to make decisions for selection of carriers based on the availability of fleet around the plant, warehouse, customer location etc. There is a huge amount of delay as carriers do not provide the service on time due to non-availability of fleet even after the order is booked. Shippers or 3PL/4PL parties should have the ability to check for the available carriers fleets around the plant, warehouse or customer location before booking the carrier. This can be achieved by digitizing the carrier's fleets and making the data available within OTM during the tendering and carrier selection.

    Solving Cyclical Shipping Requirements via Tiered Rating in OTM
    John Chau, Niagara Bottling LLC
    Tyler Christensen, Niagara Bottling LLC

    With rising customer demand for bottled water and high volatility during peak season, Niagara Bottling faces many challenges in securing sufficient transportation to fulfill its daily needs. In the past year, demand has risen as high as 200% of the contracted capacity on a single lane. This has caused Niagara Bottling to increase its reliance on ad-hoc rate procurement and spot market usage, which can range from 40% to 200% premium price over the contracted rate. In an effort to secure additional coverage and capacity at a manageable contracted rate, we have partnered with our procurement team to design and develop a strategy to implement a tier pricing structure that provides carriers a premium to secure additional capacity while compensating them for the required flexibility. Further, Niagara Bottling is able to secure transportation and maintain relationships from carriers that meet or exceed Niagara's service level requirements rather than procure at market rates with carriers with erratic service levels. Niagara Bottling has partnered with EY Consulting to develop and implement a solution that fulfills two main business requirements: 1) Tiered Rating must be functional with bulk plans and 2) Tiered Rating must be managed into daily buckets.

    With Tier Rating in place, Niagara Bottling has increased capacity flexibility, increased network stability, and is projected in 2017 to average a 22% premium over contracted rates, rather than 40% premium from ad-hoc rate procurement, and potentially yield savings in the millions.

    Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) in the Oracle Cloud - Quick Wins and Stepping Stones to a Full Implementation
    Jeremy Huntsinger, Knoll, Inc

    An OTM implementation can be a lengthy and complex project to undertake. Given Knoll's current initiative to implement Oracle EBS while also needing to improve legacy operations, an approach was created that provided short term benefits to legacy operations while also supporting the ongoing implementation of Oracle E-Business Suite. Knoll chose OTM in the Oracle Cloud, along with cloud based mileage and LTL rating/transit time services, as it offered the opportunity to gain practical experience in cloud applications. This presentation will detail our project approach, results and lessons learned.
