Egypt - IBM, in collaboration with business partner ACME SAICO, will automate 22 wheat silos across Egypt by the end of 2021, a statement said.

The step falls in line with the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade’s plans to digitize the wheat supply chain and implement governance systems on the country’s strategic stock.

According to the national plan for digital transformation, the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade, represented by the Egyptian Holding Company for Silos and Storage (EHCSS), selected IBM and ACME SAICO to create a platform powered by IBM’s AI-powered automation software in hybrid cloud environment. Using IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation and IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, the new solution will allow full automation and governance of all the steps of shipping, transport, storage, and supply of the wheat silos.

The automated platform collects data from different sensors that are embedded in the silos.

These sensors send near real-time quantitative analytics of the wheat supply and stock status to the main platform at the Ministry of Supply. Thus, the EHCSS will be able to monitor and store all information related to the incoming shipments to maintain quality standards, report accurate views of the stock in silos, as well as reduce the leakage in wheat silos extensively.

The new advanced system will also o help to better manage the communication and coordination between different storage points and mills.
