About Supply Chain AI

" "
Supply chains act as our connective tissue, supporting growth and sparking innovation. But increasingly, they are the source of challenges and constraints. Rising costs, shifting demand, critical disruptions—many companies are in a continuous cycle of assessing obstacles, identifying fixes, and hoping for the best.

Supply Chain AI, our digital supply chain offering, lets companies return to creating value. A combination of digital assets, supply chain experts, and data science and engineering talent, Supply Chain AI takes a holistic approach to transforming a company’s supply chain, from strategy and design through integrated planning and optimized execution. Backed by a unique set of AI solutions from BCG X, we enhance seven key supply chain capabilities: network design and optimization, emissions baselining, risk management, end-to-end planning transformation, digital twin representations, control tower visibility, and logistics and distribution automation.

Supply Chain AI helps organizations build for the future, realizing not only the power of digital supply chain technologies but also their own full potential.
Our Approach
