The report said: "The top retailers on Supply Chain Management remained largely consistent compared to last year, representing a wide range of channels.

"Walmart once again retained its #1 position, gaining about 80% of manufacturer mentions — a testament to its continued dedication and expediency in this area.

"Kroger and Costco maintained their #2 and #3 ranks, followed by Publix, which rose one rank to #4. Target came in at #5, having swapped positions with Publix.
