Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, announced on 6 June that it ranks No. 17 in Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 for 2017, up one place from last year. Gartner’s rankings identify supply chain leaders and highlight their best practices for heads of supply chain and strategy organizations.
Through 2016, Schneider Electric’s 11 billion euro supply chain operation was comprised of 209 manufacturing plants in 44 countries and 94 distribution centers. Its 85,000-person workforce managed 500,000 references and processed 130,000 order lines daily.
“We believe Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 recognizes the great strides we continue to make in our multiyear journey to tailor our supply chain to the needs of our customers,” said Mourad Tamoud, Executive Vice President, Global Supply Chain Operations, Schneider Electric. “This is a proud moment for our employees across the supply chain community who have worked tirelessly to achieve what we set out to do: build a worldclass supply chain that solves our customers’ unique energy challenges. And in the spirit of continuous improvement, we will continue to innovate across the end-to-end operation to better serve our customers.”
Gartner identified the top 25 performers for their 2017 report based on two main components: business performance and opinion which are combined into a total composite score. The Top 25 is selected from among a master list of companies on the Fortune Global 500 and Global 2000 annual rankings.
The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2017 results were presented at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, which was held May 23-25, 2017, in Phoenix (USA). More information is available to Gartner clients in the research note "The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2017”.
