About the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25

The Supply
Chain Top 25
 rankings comprise two main components: 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. These
two components are combined into a total composite score.

Gartner analysts derive a master list of companies from a combination of
the Fortune Global 500 and the Forbes Global 2000. In an effort to
maintain the list of companies evaluated at a manageable level, a
general annual revenue threshold of $12 billion has been applied.
