Nulogy partners with Canadian Government's scale.ai to launch intelligent supply chain project
Toronto-headquartered supply chain solution company Nulogy announced today the launch of its new project in partnership with the Canadian government’s scale.ai supercluster. The collaborative, government sponsored initiative will focus on making Canada a global leader in the application of artificial intelligence to the supply chain.
Nulogy’s project focuses on applying artificial intelligence to the late-stage customization phase of the consumer goods supply chain, where products are adapted to meet the specialized requirements of diverse channels, retail or promotional formats. As part of the initiative, Nulogy will be collaborating with Mars Canada and a select number of its Canadian suppliers to leverage the power of AI and Nulogy’s Agile Customization Platform to digitalize the consumer goods leader’s external supply chain operations.
“Through this initiative, we expect to dramatically improve collaboration and reduce waste, with our external manufacturing and packaging suppliers. As the retail and consumer landscape continues to be disrupted, agility is more important than ever for manufacturers like Mars,” said Jon Willis, Head of Supply Chain, Mars Canada. “We are excited to work with our strategic late-stage customization suppliers and alongside Nulogy to be part of this groundbreaking Canadian-led innovation that will set an example for supply chains around the globe.”
“We are thrilled to be working with our industry and government partners to realize the power of AI in optimizing the supply chain,” said Jason Tham, CEO of Nulogy. “We would like to thank the government for sponsoring this important initiative and we look forward to embarking on this work that promises to put Canada on the world stage of AI-powered supply chain innovation.”
“Through scale.ai, the Canadian government is committed to fostering industry collaborations that will further strengthen Canada’s already leading position on AI and digitalization of global supply chains,” said Julien Billot, CEO at scale.ai. “We’re delighted to see award recipient and Canadian success story, Nulogy, working with global leaders like Mars to explore the incredible potential artificial intelligence offers to tackle some of the toughest challenges within consumer goods manufacturing environments.”
