Leading research and advisory company Gartner has released findings from its annual Supply Chain Top 25. The list, announced at this week’s Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, identifies supply chain leaders and highlights their best practices.

Unilever topped the Supply Chain Top 25 ranking for the second consecutive year in 2017, followed by McDonald's, Inditex, Cisco and H&M.

"2017 marks the 13th year of our annual Supply Chain Top 25 ranking," said Stan Aronow, research vice president at Gartner. "This year we have an impressive group of leaders with new lessons to share, including two more recent entrants from the high-tech and consumer product sectors."

Two new companies made the Supply Chain Top 25, with Nokia re-joining after a seven-year hiatus and Diageo making the list for the first time.

Perennial supply chain leader Amazon joined Apple and P&G in qualifying for the "Masters" category, which Gartner introduced in 2015 to recognise sustained leadership over the last 10 years.

Here are Gartner’s top 25 supply chain leaders:
