SAP is a software company providing a system of integrated modules for every aspect of business management. But SAP isn’t just another Enterprise Resource Planning software, it’s number one in the ERP market.

In the context of your question, SAP transportation management aka SAP TM is a standalone module that meets transportation and logistics needs. It provides a centralized environment for end-to-end management of different types of freight (inbound and outbound, domestic and international) and orders (sales and purchase orders, returns, stock transfers). There you can track shipments, monitor logistics and fulfillment processes. If you need transportation management functionality, you can integrate SAP TM with your existing management system.
