According to the publication's editors, findings from this year's "100" process will be published in the June/July 2009 issue of Supply and Demand Chain Executive. It will include a listing of people, process, technology and partnering strategies that supply chain executives can leverage to meet the requirements of the current economy and the coming return to growth. The 100 companies were selected from a pool of nearly 250. The editors note that the service providers chosen represent a broad range of solutions and services targeted at a variety of industries, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes and assisting in the transformation of the diverse mix of the functions that make up the supply chain.
"In this environment, companies simply must identify any opportunity to drive out inefficiencies that negatively impact financial performance," says Mark Doughton, Inmar Reverse Logistics president, "It is rewarding to be in a position to deliver data and insight that provide invaluable visibility to a client's supply chain, as well as solutions that can be implemented relatively quickly to achieve significant, quantifiable results."
