14 of Top 15 European Supply Chain Organisations connect through GXS’ Trading Grid®. GXS Trading Grid automates supply chain processes such as procure-to-pay and order-to-cash for thousands of companies in sectors including automotive, high tech, consumer products and retail.

Gartner’s Top 15 European Supply Chain Organisations identifies the top 15 performers headquartered in Europe, based on a combination of financial metrics (revenue growth, return on assets [ROA] and inventory), and the opinion of peers and Gartner supply chain analysts.

Electronic Supply Chains according to Gartner

“Top European-headquartered supply chains bring a wide range of best practices to the supply chain community, ranging from advanced collaboration practices with upstream and downstream partners, to innovations in demand sensing and shaping capabilities, to integrated business planning that brings sales and operations planning to the next level,” said Christian Titze, research director at Gartner. ”Supply chain executives can use Gartner’s analysis of these leaders to develop and implement more integrated, collaborative and demand-driven supply chain strategies.”
