Gartner, Inc. has released its twelfth annual Supply Chain Top 25, identifying the companies that best display leadership in applying demand-driven principles to drive business results.

Analysts revealed their findings at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, which took place 17-19 May in Phoenix, Arizona.  

Stan Aronow, Research Vice President at Gartner, said: "In this year's edition, there are several long-time leaders with new lessons to share and a number of more recent entrants from the high-tech, industrial, chemical, auto and life sciences sectors."

Ranking is based on a composite score with two major components: a quantitative measurement of business performance and a qualitative summary of peer and Gartner analyst opinions.   

For the first time ever, Unilever topped the list — followed by McDonald's, Amazon, Intel and top-five newcomer H&M. Five new companies also made the Top 25, including: BASF, BMW and Schneider Electric.

Apple and P&G continued to qualify for Gartner’s 'masters' category, which recognises long-term supply chain leaders in the Top 25. To qualify, a company’s composite score must have placed them in the top five rankings for at least seven of the past ten years.
