Uber Freight gets the SAP boost

SAP and Uber Freight have announced a partnership to modernise the freight industry through intelligent process automation and better access to a network of connected and reliable drivers.

The integration of Uber Freight into SAP Logistics Business Network will let customers access rates from Uber’s digitally activated carrier network and gain real-time quotes and guaranteed freight capacity, greatly simplifying load management and execution.

“Finding and booking freight can be the most expensive and often the most complex piece of the supply chain,” said president of SAP Digital Supply Chain Hala Zeine. “This combination will remove roadblocks and offer 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 optimise their logistics and put their customers at the heart of their digital supply chain.”

SAP Logistics Business Network, built on SAP Cloud Platform and the SAP HANA business data platform, expands transportation management to enable shippers, freight forwarders, carriers and other logistics partners to easily onboard, collaborate, exchange logistics information and share insights. With this Uber Freight integration, shippers and carriers can work together using tools that bypass traditional roadblocks, enabling shippers to select from a much broader carrier base and perform real-time pricing of shipments, while gaining improved utilisation and efficiency.

“For the world’s biggest shippers, an efficient, digitalised supply chain is critical to their success,” said senior director at Uber Freight Bill Driegert. “Uber Freight is partnering with SAP to bring shippers and carriers together at the level where freight decisions are made. This tech-forward approach to freight means shippers can spend less time sourcing quotes and capacity and more time getting goods to market.”

The value of a networked approach

With this partnership, SAP and Uber Freight will work to connect both sides of the freight marketplace, increasing visibility and transparency for all players. These efforts will support easier and faster decision-making based on real-time pricing for shippers and carriers, empowering organisations to maximise daily work time and make more informed decisions about their operations.
