Building an App that Truck Drivers Love to Use with SAP Cloud Platform


It may not be a household name, but people and communities around the world count on products and services from Cargill Inc. From food ingredients and animal nutrition to agricultural supply chain, transportation, financial, and energy services, Cargill supports farmers, governments, wholesalers, and more – helping them run businesses that make the world thrive. Part of running such a complex operation is taking every opportunity to improve safety and efficiency. So when it was looking to create a mobile app for truck drivers, Cargill and Mindset Consulting, a system integration partner for Cargill and an SAP mobile apps partner, turned to longtime technology partners SAP and Apple.

Using the new SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS and the SAP Fiori user experience, Cargill was able to quickly build an iOS app for drivers that connects with its back-end SAP Transportation Management application. Now drivers have better maps, can see wait times before they arrive at the plant, and don’t need to get out of their trucks throughout the check -in and weighing processes. Not only does this keep drivers safer, but it helps them and shipping clerks use their time more efficiently. That means getting shipments where they need to be more quickly – a bonus for drivers, plant staff, and customers alike.
