4flow TORO in action

4flow TORO considers many variables and restrictions including transportation rates, capacity restrictions, route information and material master data to create optimized shipments based on scheduling agreements. The results from the standard MRP runs are transferred to 4flow TORO and immediately optimized based on transportation-relevant factors. Once verified, the optimized schedule lines are integrated back into SAP in the scheduling agreement.

4flow TORO enables businesses to take network, transportation and planning restrictions into account during the early stages of material planning. In this way, users can reduce their logistics costs.
