The Supply Chain Top 25 rankings are defined by two main areas: business performance and opinion. Business performance in the form of public financial and CSR data provides a view into how companies have performed in the past, while the opinion component offers an eye to future potential and reflects leadership in the supply chain community.

Three key trends stand out this year for supply chain leaders that are accelerating their capabilities, separating them further from the rest of the pack.
