The tags which you used like MM, Logistics Execution etc., are related to issues specific to that module. Your query is purely related to your career growth and hence, removed all those and added the appropriate tag.

is SAP MM and SAP Transportation Module relevant

Yes to some extent I would say. For any procurement activities from MM point of view, there will be transportation and the related costs involved. So, it is good to have SAP TM but not necessary. From MM module itself, we can develop reports to suit Business requirement. Its all depends on the volume of Business and transportation based on which, the client will decide whether to go with SAP TM or not.

Hi shahbaz140891

You have a very good domain experience. However, if you are looking for a job after certification in India, you would be considered as a fresher. This is a hard reality.

However, on the other side, with your experience I would suggest to look at working in organizations like Freight & logistics companies or shipping companies, which are implementing or already have SAP implemented. In parallel, you can look at SAP Transport Management or SAP Global Trade Compliance, which would be some what of an extension of your domain exp. Once you complete the certification and training you can try for an internal movement within such an organization. This way you might not loose on the pay as well as your rich domain exp.

If you want to look at Transport Management, I would suggest to look at the below learning journey from SAP, which might be useful for you.

Hope this helps.

Hi shahbaz140891

I specifically suggested Transportation Management since you have a background in Logistics handling. Traditionally TM related objects are based on Procurement related objects technically (SAP MM, if you like). However, the business process are divergent though in end to end view a next step to inventory management. I would still recommend to stick to Transportation management, especially with S/4HANA given your experience and with COVID shaping up across the globe, supply chain management with logistics(inbound and outbound) becomes all the more important and a specialization that would be sought after. This is much more relevant given your original background in logistics handling.

Thanks & Regards
