20 Most Promising Supply Chain Solution Providers - 2019

The permeation of technology has undoubtedly enhanced the efficiency of supply chains worldwide, as compared to a decade or two ago. However, many traditional challenges that plagued the realm continue to be relevant even today. These include accurately engineering solutions that cater to the tastes of each customer, foreseeing and eliminating risks before they tend to become enterprise-critical. Risks, in particular, are influenced by several factors such as fluctuations in customer demand, new product launches, and credit availability. Traditionally, the lack of an intelligent strategy to mitigate supply chain challenges has triggered several setbacks for enterprises. Enterprise bosses have started to realize over the years that the failure to forecast risks or hurdles could spell doom for their organizations and the need of the hour is seeking the advice of supply chain experts.  

Thus, enterprises whose growth is largely determined by the operation of their supply chains are seeking the guidance of consultants to devise effective strategies to empower their supply chains. In the wake of the unanimous need among organizations for ideal vendors to mitigate traditional supply chain woes, our editorial board conducted a comprehensive study of promising solution providers who are making waves world over. This edition of our magazine, a compilation of ‘20 Most Promising Supply Chain Solution Providers 2019’ from across the world, is a result of their efforts. We hope this edition helps these enterprises end their pursuit of a vendor with an ability to tailor solutions aligned with their organizational goals.
