Global Supply Chains are disrupted.
A shortage of shipping containers emerged, shipping rates for certain routes skyrocketed, congestion developed at international ports that then spread to railroads and inland rail terminals, aggravating the trucking and carriage shortage that was already in place. U.S. importers experienced delays in receiving key manufacturing components and exporters faced challenges accessing containers and getting bookings on shipping vessels and so much more.
Today, many companies are realizing that resilience can be purchased at the expense of efficiency but organisations are exploring new ways to improve their resiliency strategies so that the efficiency is not compromised. Due to the rapid pace of global competition and the increasing number of disruptions, the supply chain functions need to step up their game. As supply chains become more complex and interconnected, their visibility into real-time operations is becoming more critical. At Pluto7, we help our customers achieve supply chain planning that is powered by AI helping them make better decisions with respect to their assets and operations.
Pluto7’s goal of supply chain transformation is to align the supply chain’s operational efficiency. which requires a step by step approach. As businesses experienced shutdown post pandemic the supply chain weaknesses in the ecosystems were revealed. Organisations were in urgent need of relying on solutions that could equip them rapid decision making capabilities at scale.
At Pluto7, we work with our customers to build adaptable, agile and intelligent supply chains. To know more, please visit:

The supply chain disruption that started in 2021 has now escalated due to the recovery of the economy, a shortage of skilled workers, and an overstressed transportation system. This phenomenon has accelerated the adoption of the Supply Chain Twin as enterprises are responding to the pandemic.
According to McKinsey, 61% of executives report decreased costs, and 53% report increased revenues as a direct result of introducing AI into their supply chains. Lower inventory-carrying costs, inventory reductions of up to 75%, and lower transportation and labor costs are among the biggest areas of savings. AI can help companies predict the future needs of raw materials and components, and it can also help them manage their work-in-progress and final product demands.
A supply chain twin works as a digital twin for a Supply Chain that provides a bird’s eye view of the connected operations, which enable users to analyze, evaluate and react to unexpected disruptions in real-time. It is also used to visualize and analyze supply chain data. The challenge for companies is to make their supply chains resilient enough to withstand the impact of a pandemic without weakening their competitive advantage.
Supply chains have become substantially more challenging to manage. Supply chain visibility is the key enabler of managing a business, both within and beyond the organization’s boundaries. This visibility allows the management of a supply chain to achieve a competitive advantage. The complexity of the supply chain and its increasing complexity are driving the need for supply chain visibility. The concept of Supply Chain Twin aims to measure and control the overall supply chain’s effectiveness with resiliency, agility, and intelligence.
With the availability of AI-based solutions, companies can now achieve next-level performance in their supply-chain management. These solutions help improve planning and execution, and they can help minimize manual work and improve efficiency. The right solution is critical to successfully manage the complexity of today’s supply chain. It should be designed to work seamlessly with the organization’s strategy and should also fit well with the existing processes.
Through the use of technology, supply-chain operations can be more streamlined and effective, without the need for additional workers or resources. This is evidenced by the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) as a key component of the supply chain process. AI-capable machines can learn to perform tasks in a manner similar to that of humans. They can learn to respond to various conditions and solve various problems in unexpected ways.
