    Dear Naragini,

    In general shippers use TM to replace their LE-TRA functionality on the ECC side, the input for their planning process is a DTR/OTR which is created, based on sales or delivery on the ECC side. A typical shipper scenario is Domestic Outbound Transportation(DOT) , where purchased or traded goods are distributed in an efficient way to the customers.

    In general LSP(Logistic Service providers) don't have ECC, but can use SAP TM as a stand-alone solution. All they do is to offer their transportation network to shippers(e.g. because for the shipper it is not efficient to ship a 20-foot container with only 3 pallets to the other side of the ocean). Their starting point is not a DTR/OTR, but a FWO (Forwarding order, however OTR/DTR/FWO are technically the same objects and are all the input for freight unit building). A typical LSP(in this case a Freight Forwarder) scenario is LCL(Less Than a Containerload), in this scenario the LSP enters several FWO's for different shippers(e.g. 6 shippers with each 3 pallets) and consolidates this cargo into 1 container. The transport of the container is outsource to an ocean liner for which a Ocean Booking in TM is created.

    This is only a very short summary to your questions(there are many more scenario's), to get a full understanding of the scenario I recommend to read the link below. Good sources of information are also the TM podcasts and the TM Book.
