»Im diesjährigen Ranking haben sich vier der Top 5 der europäischen Supply-Chain-Unternehmen des Jahres 2015 auch weiterhin in den Top 5 gehalten (siehe Table1). H&M und Inditex tauschten die Plätze und landeten jeweils auf dem zweiten und dritten Platz, wohingegen Schneider Electric dieses Jahr sein Debut in den Top 5 feiern konnte«, erläutert Stan Aronow, Research Vice President bei Gartner. »Des Weiteren gelangten dieses Jahr auch drei neue Unternehmen in das Top 15 Ranking Europas, darunter das Unternehmen Bayer, das zum ersten Mal im Ranking mit dabei war, sowie Nokia und Ahold Delhaize, die nach einigen Jahren wieder gelistet waren.«

Dieses Jahr hielt sich Unilever nicht nur auf dem ersten Platz des europäischen Supply-Chain-Rankings, sondern erreichte auch im weltweiten Ranking den zweiten Platz. H&M hingegen stieg einen Rang nach oben und erreichte dieses Jahr den zweiten Platz. Das verdeutlicht die überzeugende Erfolgsbilanz bezüglich Nachhaltigkeit und Arbeitnehmerrechte – zudem das Unternehmen einen großen Wachstumsschub zeigte.

Regional Supply Chain Leaders Were Revealed at Gartner’s Supply Chain Executive Conference 2016, 19-20 September in London

Egham, UK, 20th September, 2016 — Gartner, Inc., has revealed its 2016 ranking of the top 15 supply chain organisations based in Europe at its annual Supply Chain Executive Conference, which is being held through today in London.

»In this year’s edition, four of the top five European supply chain organisations from 2015 (see Table 1) remained in the top five. H&M and Inditex switched places at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively and Schneider Electric made its debut in the European top five,« said Stan Aronow, research vice president at Gartner. »Three new companies also made the supply chain top 15 ranking in Europe this year, with Bayer joining the list for the first time and Nokia and Ahold Delhaize rejoining after several years.«

This year, Unilever not only maintained the No. 1 spot in the European supply chain ranking, but also ranked No. 1 globally. Unilever has made supply chain a true partner to the business in delivering its broader Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, with the aim of doubling revenue and halving its environmental impact by 2020. H&M climbed one place to gain the No. 2 European ranking this year, reflecting a strong record in sustainability and workers‘ rights, as it quickly grows its business.

Uncertainty in Europe exists and has increased since the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. »More than ever, leading organisations in Europe will need to optimise their supply chain functions and embrace bi-modal capabilities* in order to drive growth and remain competitive in new markets,« said Mr Aronow. »They will also need to deliver strategies that add real value to consumers, be mindful of new competitors capitalising on this period of uncertainty, and incorporate corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals into their supply chain strategy and operations.«

Gartner has outlined below some of the common challenges and key supply chain capabilities of this year’s leading European supply chain organisations:

 A Growing Emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility

This year, for the first time, Gartner included a CSR score in order to highlight CSR excellence within Europe’s top supply chains, with seven of the top 15 European companies scoring a maximum of 10 and four more scoring nine of out of 10.

»The emphasis on CSR is not only driven by investors, but also by consumers, employees and the general public, all of whom expect businesses to run socially responsible supply chains and for their methods and results to be made public,« said Mr Aronow.

Increased Adoption of Advanced Analytics

The use of predictive and prescriptive analytics is becoming more prevalent within leading European organisations across all sectors. For example, Nestlé uses predictive analytic algorithms to support its global engineering process flows and expand its supply chain. BASF is developing a single platform supply chain control tower, applying advanced prescriptive analytics to remove silos in its supply chain and create a value-based supply chain ecosystem.

Digital Business and Innovation Increasingly Featured

Digital business is increasingly featured as part of the capabilities of leading supply chains. Companies such as Unilever are spending a substantial proportion of their marketing activities on digital, and the supply chain is being reconfigured to leverage digital opportunities. Schneider Electric receives more than 70 per cent of its orders digitally, which substantially reduces order processing time.

Supply chain innovation is no longer used just to make supply chain more efficient, but also to drive a new level of competitive advantage for leading organisations. For example, L’Oréal uses its supply chain technology and analytics to monitor the safety of its ingredients, thereby reducing the need for product testing on animals; also, H&M has a supply chain designed to move a garment from design to the hanger within 20 days.

Mode 1 is a linear approach to change, emphasising predictability, accuracy, reliability and stability.
Mode 2 is a nonlinear approach that involves learning through iteration, emphasising agility and speed and, above all, the ability to manage uncertainty.
