Gartner Report: 60% of the Top 15 companies in Europe Regularly Optimize Their Supply Chains

What is the Gartner Top 25 Supply Chain?

Gartner’s ranking of the top 25 Supply Chain companies is based on two main components: business performance and opinions. Business performance, measured through public financials and ESG (environmental, social, governance) data, provides a view of how companies have performed in the past. On the other hand, opinions are assessed to evaluate companies’ future potential and leadership within the supply chain community. A composite score is derived from evaluations based on these two components.

Gartner analysts compile a list of companies from the Fortune Global 500 and Global 2000 lists. To keep the list manageable, a minimum revenue threshold of $12 billion is set.

For the world’s leading companies offering supply chain analytics solutions supported by artificial intelligence, Llamasoft shares a brief excerpt from this report:

“As emphasized in the Gartner report, scenario planning is crucial for emerging from crisis periods such as pandemics. Leading companies are testing scenarios to predict how they will maintain their competitive edge during market disruptions and in the recovery period. They are also developing risk mitigation strategies in case of new waves of COVID-19.” Llamasoft’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for Europe, Slimane Allab, continues, “We can say that better supply chain decisions begin with a healthy data infrastructure. Then, we believe that companies will have a key to faster, smarter, end-to-end decision-making across their entire supply chain with an enterprise decision-making platform supported by artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms fed by this data source.”
