  • CANCELLED: 2020 Oracle Transportation Management Users Conference

    To our members and partners,

    It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 OTM SIG User Conference, scheduled for August 2-5, 2020 in Philadelphia. This decision was made after careful consideration of the global situation associated with the COVID-19 virus for the health and safety of our community.

    OTM SIG is a non-profit organization and this decision will have a financial impact on the organization. Because of excellent leadership and financial stewardship, the organization has sufficient reserves to be able to do what is right for the community without jeopardizing the on-going operations of the organization.

    The OTM SIG team is currently working to create an expanded e-Learning calendar through the end of this year to bring you the enriching content you have known to trust from our many years of events. We look forward to seeing you at our 2021 event in Philadelphia.

  • New eLearning Presented by OTM and Inspirage

    Check out the latest eLearning session, presented by the OTM SIG and Inspirage.

    "OTM and Inspirage Present: Preparing Shipments for Export: GTM Document Determination and Regulatory"
    Panelist Information
    : David Welch and Tom Leonard
    Recording Date: Tuesday, February 11, 2020, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
    All international shipments are regulated, some more than others. A shipper must determine if an item can legally be imported to a country, and what documents (invoices, licenses, certificates, and statements) must travel with the shipment. This webinar will provide ideas on how better manage these decisions by configuring Oracle GTM document determination and regulatory eligibility processes. We will cover several heavily regulated industries from an export and import perspective.

    The presentation was provided by David Welch, Manager with Inspirage and Tom Leonard, also with Inspirage.
