Gartner, Inc. has just released the Top 25 2019 Supply Chain list. This annual list identifies supply chain leaders and highlights their best practices. Analysts announced the results at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, which is being held this week at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Ariz. "2019 is the 15th consecutive year we are publishing the Supply Chain Top 25 ranking," said Mike Griswold, vice president, analyst at Gartner. "The ranking consists of an impressive group of leaders, including two new entrants, one from retail and one from the chemical sectors. Colgate-Palmolive scored the top spot in the ranking for the first time, followed by Inditex, Nestlé, PepsiCo and Cisco (see Table 1). Chinese e-commerce company, Alibaba, and Dutch chemical company, Akzo Nobel, joined the Supply Chain Top 25 for the first time.

Along with the “Masters” category, the Supply Chain Top 25 continues to offer a platform for insights, learning, debate and contributions to the rising influence of supply chain practices on the global economy.
