The article outlines an innovative and intelligent supply chains with respect to synonymous terms. The main aim of the research was to identify the technological solutions used in supply chain management based on literature review, surveys and on the example of two selected supply chains. The research pointed to a low level of implementation of technologies which might result from a poor knowledge of these technologies. In the context of the presented topic, the focus was on factors related to technological aspects that, from the point of view of organizations, are important for obtaining competitive advantage.
