Have your say and nominate supply chain influencers and legends in our search for the Top 100 Leaders announced at BizClik Media’s upcoming LIVE event

The search is on for the Top 100 Leaders in Supply Chain 2021 – nominated by readers of Supply Chain Digital magazine and open to all.

 

The initiative has been launched and nominations are now open, with the final, prestigious Top 100 due to be announced during Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE running 28-30 September, beamed from London to the world.

 

This latest, definitive list of the leading executives and influencers in the industry will be announced at the event and shared across social media channels, this website, and presented in a special supplement that honours all of those named in our annual list.

 

The Top 100 Leaders follows on from the well-received Top 100 Women in Supply Chain that BizClik Media Group (BMG) – publishers of Supply Chain Digital, Procurement Magazine, and a growing portfolio of industry-leading titles – produced in March this year to coincide with International Women’s Day. 

 

“The Top 100 Women recognised the incredible and influential women driving our industry,” says Scott Birch, editorial director, BMG. “The success of that initiative encouraged us to recognise the Top 100 Leaders – individuals championing everything that we love about supply chain and embracing best practice that’s good for business.”

 

Nominations are already coming in, with some notable highlights including:

Payments, procurement and supply chain digitalisation specialist Tradeshift just passed $1 trillion in transactions across its platforms

Tradeshift helps transportation and logistics organisations digitally transform their processes. The company offers a suite of services, including spend management, accounts payable and invoice automation, eprocurement, and supplier collaboration through a dedicated B2B supply chain marketplace of more than one million businesses. 

As disruption and digitisation continue to accelerate, demand for Tradeshift’s solutions has grown dramatically. The company recently announced the signing of 20 new global enterprise customers since the beginning of its financial year on 1 February, while the number of active businesses transacting on the Tradeshift platform rise by 52 per cent year on year. 

Tradeshift Chief Revenue Officer Christope Bodin expects that growth trajectory to continue, as the economy begins to fully reopen and the world works towards recovering from the pandemic. “We are well positioned to support the wholesale digitalisation of business processes,” Bodin said. “For organisations looking to grow in a post-COVID economy, this is fast becoming an organisational standard.”

Tradeshift in Brief

  • HQ: San Francisco, USA
  • Employees: 800 located in offices in 13 countries 
  • Customers: 500+ in 190+ countries 
  • Total on-platform transaction value: $1tn 
  • Platform: 1.5m companies connected

Key Tradeshift customers: Volvo, Kuehne+Nagel, DHL, Air France-KLM Group


Tradeshift: From $1 to $1 trillion 


Tradeshift was co-founded in 2010 by long-time partners: CEO Christian Lanng; Mikkel Hippe Brun, the company’s SVP APAC; and Gert Sylvest, VP Network Products. 

The company was established with a mission to “connect every company in the world, digitally,” according to Lanng, and followed the trio's earlier product EasyTrade, a pioneering open-source trade platform. 

In July 2021, just over a decade since launch, Tradeshift announced passing a new milestone: the cumulative value of transactions processed across its platform passed the $1 trillion threshold. To put that in perspective, Tradeshift said it took two years to reach the $1bn milestone. 

Commenting on Tradeshift’s current and future standing, chief executive Christian Lanng said: “We’ve helped a lot of businesses to stay operational and get paid during an extremely volatile period. Every time a business joins our platform it unlocks a whole ecosystem of relationships that we can help to digitise. This sets us apart from the majority of enterprise software providers who remain preoccupied with building connections one at a time.”
