inside intelligence for responsible business



October 2013

Top ranking... Gartner Inc has published its annual ranking of the top performing supply chain organizations headquartered in Asia Pacific. The goal of Gartner’s annual Supply Chain Top 25 research initiative is to raise awareness of the supply chain discipline and how it impacts the business.

Samsung Electronics (No.1) retained its leadership position among companies in Asia Pacific, moving up five slots in the worldwide ranking from No.13 to No.8. With a vision of gaining competitive advantage through product and process excellence, it achieved first place in 2012 for smartphone and overall mobile phone sales worldwide. The company’s advanced and highly integrated supply chain spans product, process and people, a key reason for Samsung’s success.

Lenovo (No.2) moved up two spots from 2012, backed by impressive revenue growth and inventory turns. Five new companies entered the top 10 in 2013 compared to last year: Haier, Flextronics, Honda Motor, Canon and LG Electronics. Tata Motors came in at No.5 and Toyota at No.6.
