Infor is now offering version 9.0 of Infor SCM Transportation Management. The software manages global transportation and trade compliance. It handles inbound and outbound movements, from order inception to delivery, for customers in the retail, distribution and manufacturing sectors. According to the vendor, the latest version offers increased visibility and control over inventory, costs, transportation planning, execution and global trade compliance across multiple modes. Specific enhancements include embedded optimization, routing compliance, additional freight-payment support, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance reporting, and improved freight rate-maintenance tools. At the same time, Infor has extended trade-compliance coverage from 50 to 120 countries, through a new trade-data partnership with Amber Road, a provider of global trade-management software. The transportation-management tool allows carriers and suppliers to deploy a single system to access real-time information. Suppliers can monitor shipment status, while shippers can ensure that rates are accurate and goods are shipped as efficiently as possible.
