SAP and Uber Freight announce link-up
SAP to add Uber Freight to its logistics network in first integration for the on-demand freight service
SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) and Uber Freight today announced that Uber Freight will be integrated into SAP® Logistics Business Network. This will let customers access transportation rates from Uber's digitally activated carrier network, gain real-time quotes and book freight capacity.
SAP Logistics Business Network, built on SAP Cloud Platform and the SAP HANA® business data platform, enables shippers, freight forwarders, carriers and other logistics partners to onboard, collaborate, exchange logistics information and share insights. This is an industry-first integration for Uber Freight.
"Finding and booking freight can be the most expensive and often the most complex piece of the supply chain," said Hala Zeine, president, SAP Digital Supply Chain. "This combined solution will remove roadblocks and offers a simpler, more automated approach that streamlines operations, delivers tangible cost savings and ultimately creates a better customer experience. Adding Uber Freight to our SAP Logistics Business Network will help our customers optimize their logistics and put their customers at the heart of their digital supply chain."
"For the world's biggest shippers, an efficient, digitalized supply chain is critical to their success," said Bill Driegert, senior director, Uber Freight. "Uber Freight is partnering with SAP to bring shippers and carriers together at the level where freight decisions are being made. This innovative tech-forward approach to freight means shippers can spend less time sourcing quotes and capacity and more time getting goods to market."
