Smart supply chain for the minerals and metals sector

The Challenge

The initiative will enable the digitization of the mineral and metal value chain in order to secure supply chains and improve their performance. Among other benefits, the project will make it possible to measure the socioenvironmental impact of these value chains thereby maximizing the Canadian industry’s competitive advantage, while making better and more planet-friendly use of resources. The development of highly advanced AI algorithms will provide an essential tool for industry stakeholders to meet commercial and environmental requirements. 

Louis Roy, president and founder of OPTEL: “An intelligent supply chain will allow Canada and its trading partners to optimize their commercial exchanges. In addition to providing commercial partners with information on the provenance of materials in circulation, the data collected and analyzed will make it possible to put concrete measures in place to improve the sector’s environmental performance in relation to the circular economy, from extraction to utilization, as well as the recuperation of materials.”
