Unilever claims top spot in Gartner’s Top European Supply Chain Organizations for 2013

26th September 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, September 26, 2013: Gartner, has revealed its annual ranking of the Top 15 supply chain organizations headquartered in Europe at its annual Supply Chain Executive Conference, which took place in London this week.

Gartner identified the top 15 performers headquartered in Europe, based on a combination of financial metrics (revenue growth, return on assets [ROA] and inventory), and the opinion of peers and Gartner supply chain analysts.

The top five includes four companies from last year — Unilever, Inditex, H&M and Nestlé (that were also listed in Gartner’s Global Supply Chain Top 25) — and one new entrant, BASF, which has improved its position steadily. Four new companies joined the European top 15 ranking this year: Danone, L’Oréal, Diageo and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

Christian Titze, Research director at Gartner, said, “Top European supply chains span the automotive, chemical, consumer products, life science and retail sectors and are headquartered in a variety of European countries, including France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. Supply chain executives can use Gartner’s analysis of these leaders to develop and implement more integrated, collaborative and demand-driven supply chain strategies.”

“Top European-headquartered supply chains bring a wide range of best practices to the supply chain community, ranging from advanced collaboration practices with upstream and downstream partners, to innovations in demand sensing and shaping capabilities, to integrated business planning that brings sales and operations planning to the next level,” Titze said.
