Supermarket chain Carrefour France has selected AI-enabled decision platform Symphony RetailAI to implement its warehouse replenishment, inventory flow optimisation and supply chain insights solutions.

Symphony RetailAI solutions will help Carrefour optimise inventory levels and enhance service rates across its omnichannel and multi-format business.

Leveraging inventory flow optimisation to model and simulate the flow of goods, the supermarket chain will enhance transport, logistics, inventory management, distribution to maximise end-to-end profitability.

The retailer will strengthen its supply chain with operational BI functionalities and dashboards, offering a full visibility on service rates, merchandise flows and inventory levels.

“The collaboration with Symphony RetailAI will enable us to drive our omni-channel supply chain even more efficiently and improve our service rates, to better serve our distribution network and our customers.”

The current partnership is part of the group’s on-going strategic collaboration with Symphony RetailAI.
