FairPrice Group Supply Chain secures win at SBR National Business Awards 2024

Its SCope solution uses analytics and alerts to detect and manage supply chain disruptions.

FairPrice Group Supply Chain (FPGSC) won the Supply Chain category at the recently held SBR National Business Awards 2024 for its supply chain risk monitoring solution, Supply Chain Operation Centre (SCope).

SCope connects data across FPGSC for near-real-time, end-to-end visibility. Operating as a dynamic nerve centre, SCope processes 60 million data points every day encompassing news, weather, shipments, port situations, local traffic, and distribution networks. Focused primarily on monitoring FPG’s imported merchandise, SCope was designed as a strategic solution to help FPG ensure resilience and efficiency and consistently delivers on its social mission to keep daily essentials within reach for all in Singapore, amidst an ever-evolving supply chain landscape and potential global disruptions.

Over the past two years, FPGSC has made significant strides in enhancing SCope’s effectiveness and efficiency. FPGSC collaborated with leading digital supply chain solutions provider Everstream Analytics to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics into SCope’s capabilities, enabling it to deliver insights and risk assessments that help FPG manage its supply chain more autonomously and sustainably.

These improved capabilities have enabled FPG to address an industry-wide challenge in the domain of farm-level tracking - effectively monitoring tier 2 and 3 suppliers that are most vulnerable to external shocks, such as commercial farms supplying live poultry and rice cultivators. SCope can now track the health and safety of commercial farms supplying livestock to primary suppliers in their country of origin, in real-time, enabling a more effective response to potential issues impacting farms within a specified radius.

These use cases demonstrate FPG’s ongoing commitment to leveraging digital transformation as an engine for innovation in its operations and how it serves its customers.

SCope also utilises cutting-edge technology to monitor shipments, road traffic, and potential jams along the causeway. This proactive approach gives FPGSC the information it needs to redirect supplies through alternative causeways or during periods of reduced traffic, preventing potential delays and disruptions.

SCope also plays a crucial role in supporting broader food resilience goals, mapping out how new food sources can benefit other distributors.

FPG remains dedicated to strengthening supply chain resilience through SCope and ultimately better meeting the needs of its customers through its social mission to keep daily essentials within reach for all in Singapore. Beyond supply chain resilience, FPGSC actively seeks to enhance SCope's capabilities to minimise its carbon footprint and operate more sustainably, whilst leveraging it as a monitoring tool to track its other sustainable initiatives across the business. For example, this includes performance tracking and resulting reduction in carbon emissions from FPGSC’s fleet of electric vehicles.

SCope remains at the forefront of innovation, not only ensuring the reliability of the supply chain but also embodying FPG's dedication to environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
