2022 Global Supply Chain Top 25 Announced
Gartner, Inc. recently released the results from its annual Global Supply Chain Top 25, identifying leading supply chains and highlighting their best practices.
Cisco Systems scored the top spot in the ranking for the third consecutive year, followed by Schneider Electric, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson and PepsiCo (see Figure 1). Three companies joined this year’s list for the first time: Microsoft, Siemens and AstraZeneca.
To recognize sustained supply chain excellence, Gartner introduced the “Masters” category in 2015. To be considered Masters, companies must have attained top-five composite scores for at least seven out of the last 10 years. All of last year’s Masters – Amazon, Apple, P&G, McDonald’s, and Unilever – again qualified for the category this year.
Gartner also identified four key trends for supply chain leaders:
1) CSCO as Chief Ecosystem Officer
2) Self-stablizing supply chains
3) Progress on broader sustainability agenda
4) Human-centric digital automation
Reflecting the growing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives for supply chain leaders, nineteen companies achieved the highest possible ESG score this year.
