Article summary:

The world’s supply chains are being squeezed, from the pandemic-driven rise in consumer demand for tech goods to a backlog of imports at California ports to U.S. factory outages caused by bad weather. Enter Scoutbee, a scale-up using AI to transform supplier discovery and supplier information management. Its technology tools add transparency to what supply options are available locally and globally, and introduces corporates to a range of options that help them overcome traditional obstacles like language and geography. Its customers include Airbus, Audi, Siemens and Kärcher.
