Apple heeft opnieuw de beste supply chain van de wereld bericht over de nieuwe supply chain top 25 van Gartner. Unilever is het enige Europese bedrijf in de Top 10 en schoof vijf plekken op in vergelijking met vorig jaar. Dat blijkt uit het jaarlijkse onderzoek Supply Chain Top 25 van Gartner dat verder wordt gedomineerd door Amerikaanse concerns met voor de vijfde keer op nummer 1 Apple, gevolgd door Amazon en McDonalds.

Supply Chain Brain bericht er verder over:
Gartner Inc. has released the findings from its eighth annual Supply Chain Top 25, its initiative to raise awareness of the supply chain discipline and how it impacts the business, and once again Apple topped the list. The supply chain top five included two other mainstays; Dell and P+G; and two that are newer to the ranking, but have been rising steadily; Amazon and McDonald’s.
Stellar financials, which further improved this year, supported by the highest voting scores point to Apple’s combination of operational and innovation excellence, a zealous focus on starting with the consumer experience and working back through the design of its supply network, and mastery in orchestrating its end-to-end value network.

Gartner analysts said Amazon is a great example of an “orchestrator” that goes beyond simply borrowing and adapting others’ best practices and consistently defies conventional wisdom.

McDonald’s moved up five spots to No. 3 this year on strong financials and peer opinion votes. The ubiquitous restaurant chain has managed the balance between new product growth, and the resulting complexity in supply chain planning and execution.

“Last year, we noted that companies were starting to invest in resources and assets again, reflecting a newly recovering economy,” said Debra Hofman, managing vice president at Gartner. “This year, that trend continues even more strongly, with many companies investing for growth. The global economic recovery has been uneven and halting in some cases, but, on balance, the result has been expansionary for companies’ bottom lines and outlooks.”
