Become a Peer Voter in the Gartner 2014 Supply Chain Top 25 Ranking

By Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor
January 20, 2014 - SCMR Editorial

Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 is an annual ranking that calls out large manufacturers and retailers from the Fortune Global 500 and the Forbes Global 2000 who display superior supply chain performance, capabilities and leadership of the best supply chains. 

The Top 25 has received extensive coverage including SCMR, Forbes, Financial Times, Business Week and CNBC plus references on hundreds of websites in at least 20 languages around the world. 

Gartner is justifiably proud to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Top 25 in 2014.

A key component of the ranking is a Peer Voting Panel.  The Peer Panel includes senior supply chain professionals around the world in manufacturing, distribution and retail companies, as well as representatives from the academic community.

The Top 25 Peer Vote will be held in April, and results will be published at the Gartner 2014 Supply Chain Executive Conference, 20 May 2014.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Leading the Decade.”
