SAP Logistics Business Network

Connected or convoluted– how do you manage your supply chain?

Due to the inclusion of many new players, the management of enterprise logistics is becoming increasingly complex. This also makes it increasingly difficult to maintain transparency and control over your own supply chain. The features of SAP Logistics Business Network (LBN) help you master these specific challenges. In the cloud-based LBN, your processes interact directly with your business partners. SAP LBN provides you with essential information and increases the transparency in your logistics chain.

As a result, you'll find it easier to make decisions while also reducing costs. What’s more, the solution integrates seamlessly withSAP S/4HANA.

SAP LBN provides three independent solutions:

  • Global track and trace
  • freight collaboration
  • and material traceability


Global track and trace

  • Gain transparency in your supply chain through cloud-based tracking information.
  • Give your customers the possibility to track their current order processing status.

Freight collaboration

  • Benefit from sharing documents (tenders, invoices, milestone confirmations) and joint administration of transactions.
  • Take advantage of connectivity and monitor your supply chain.

Material traceability

  • Trace the genealogy of your materials and reduce quality issues.
  • Track the origin of your raw materials or products with just a few clicks.
