Sainsbury's Opts For Blue Yonder's AI-Powered Platform

Mon Apr 27 2020

Supermarket giant announces adoption of Blue Yonder’s AI-powered platform to aid in digitally transforming their supply chain.

The Supermarket giant says the move to Blue Yonder’s AI powered platform will allow them to use artificial intelligence across multiple supply chain functions.


Blue Yonder’s end-to-end platform promises organisations to improve performance across their supply chains by analysing and learning from customers behaviours.

Sainsburys will now have access to numerous supply chain functions including:


  • Demand prediction & replenishment
  • Warehouse management
  • Digital control tower
  • Macros pace planning
  • Staff management
  • Range management
  • Yard management


The plan is for the supermarkets tech teams to work alongside Blue Yonder in order to create an autonomous supply chain network with advance machine learning capabilities.

There’s also plans to implement Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform so that stores will be able to manage perishable goods in a more cost-effective manner as it comes with control tower functionality, providing supply chain visibility, collaboration and orchestration across the entire supply network.

The digital transformation will include over 2,000 stores, all operating under the Sainsbury's, Habitat and Argos brands.
