This article thus adopts a fuzzy set theoretical approach to unpack the entities relationship validity for sustainable SCF mate-framework, and the originality of AI concepts to sustainable SCF to identify the issues and inefficiencies. The results indicate that AI contributes significant economic opportunities and deliver the most effective utilization of the supply networks.
