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.”

Now that Congress has issued another highway funding Band-Aid – a $10.9 billion highway bill through next May that former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood blasted as “totally inadequate” – what can we expect as the infamously do-nothing 113th Congress winds down in the next month before taking yet another recess to prep for the mid-term elections?

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in July headed up 1.3 percent on the heels of a 0.8 percent increase in June. The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment, was 133.3 in July, which outpaced June’s 132.3 by 0.8 percent, and was up 2.8 percent annually.

Volumes for the month of July at the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) were mixed, according to data recently issued by the ports. Unlike May and June, which saw higher than usual seasonal volumes, due to the West Coast port labor situation, July was down as retailers had completed filling inventories for back-to-school shopping.
