Lenovo's Service Supply Chain Wins Award for AI-Driven System to Make Packaging More Efficient and Eco-Friendly
Lenovo Group Limited
Lenovo's Service Supply Chain team recently made an AI-driven process called the Intelligent Excessive Pre-alert that looks for high-density packaging in the company's worldwide distribution hub in Suzhou, China. Once recognised, the packaging is modified or replaced to be more efficient and environmentally friendly, resulting in a lower environmental impact.
Lenovo's international centre has made a meaningful, measurable impact in furthering Lenovo's sustainability goals as a result of this innovation: packaging materials were decreased by more than 35%, and related carbon emissions by 50,000 KG, or the equivalent of 9000 trees, yearly.
“As a tech company, innovation is a key tenet,” said Steven Chen, Executive Director, International Services Supply Chain, Lenovo, who helped pioneer the solution. “We always look at how we can use technology to solve challenges, not just for our customers but also for ourselves. This is an excellent example of how we've used artificial intelligence to help us identify and reduce excessive packaging in our products, allowing us to be more sustainable in the long run."
The Muse Award is one of the most important awards in the world for creativity. The international competition honours designers "whose craftsmanship shifts paradigms." People are amazed by how creative and thorough they are, and as a result, they push the limits of what is possible, much like a muse.
The award is given out once a year, and the winners are chosen by a strict panel of 42 professionals from the International Award Association.
The award is a sign of how Lenovo is changing its business, streamlining operations, and making smarter solutions for the whole enterprise. Lenovo also continues to put environmental, social, and governance (ESG) excellence at the top of its list of priorities in everything it does, from PC materials to supply chain operations.
