We’re honored and excited to be named, for the tenth time in thirteen years, as one of the Top 100 Supply Chain Partners by SupplyChainBrain. To get on the list, a company must be nominated several times by its customers. Praise from our customers is the ultimate recognition, and we’re thankful to once again be a part of the prestigious list.
So here’s our methodology for the 100 Great Supply Chain Partners nominations: The list is made up of solutions providers who have received multiple nominations from their customers and/or whose customers agreed to be interviewed by SupplyChainBrain for a published, in-depth study.
- Reliability. Can you count on this partner to make good on its claims — and stay that way?
- Excellence. Just how good is the service, anyway?
- Value. Are you getting what you paid for — or, even better, more than that?
- Expertise. How well do the individuals who are serving you know your business?
- Problem-solving skills. When bad things happen, as they always will, does the vendor step up to address them? Better yet, does it proactively take steps to prevent them from happening in the first place?
- Continuous improvement. Markets and consumer buying habits don’t remain static. Neither should your service provider.
- Support. Is the provider there for you after the sale is made?
- Positive attitude. Does the provider exhibit a “can-do” attitude in difficult times?
- Global reach. By definition, supply chains are global in nature. So, too, must be the provider.
- Strong leadership. Is the provider setting the pace of change, or scrambling to keep up with it?
That’s the thinking behind our annual issue on “100 Supply Chain Partners” — where we elicit actual feedback from customers of logistics, transportation, technology and supply-chain management providers. To be included in this list, a vendor must be nominated by a satisfied buyer. It’s the true test of whether those bold advertising claims prove out in the real world.
