Being part of the Customer Success Team for Logistics at SAP, we are trying to resolve customer challenges as quickly as possible.

Over the past 2 months, we've analyzed all incidents logged by customers and partners on challenges experienced during Transportation Management implementations. Some of the frequent incidents logged are related to Freight Order Issues, Freight Unit Issues, Freight Settlement Document Issues, Transportation Cockpit Issues, Optimizer issues, EWM/TM integration etc.

Below are the top 12 SAP notes/KBA's recommended for common incidents logged related to Transportation Management.
