ArcelorMittal (Brazil): First live customer with TM in Latin America

Since end of April ArcelorMittal is live with TM in their most important steel plant in Brazil (Juiz de Forawith 1 Mio tons Steel/year of long products).

All Business processes are running with great success.
ArcelorMittal plans all outbound processes and inbound processes with TM.
Order Integration works (SOs, POs, STOs) – the planning of inbound and outbound was successfully done (including Carrier Selection using business shares) – Tendering runs fine (with TM tendering and communication with legacy carrier portal) – deliveries and shipments are transferred to ERP, executed and billed.
Also reporting of actual dates in SAP EM works pretty efficient and successfully.
The EM reporting functionally is also integrated in the carrier portal functionality that is used by ArcelorMittal, so that carriers can report actual events, but also be compliant to the legal restrictions of Brazil by notifying ArcelorMittal in advance about truck/driver data.

The first truck got loaded and left the plant with the help of TM.

ArcelorMittal Brazil is the first live customer in Brazil and Latin America.

And it is as well the first live customer in steel production.

Very remarkable in this project is, that ArcelorMittal Sistemas (IT company of ArcelorMittal in Latin America) did the implementation without any external help or consultants. This is a great success for ArcelorMittal Sistemas. Congratulation for this.
