AMR Research: Apple Ranks #2 in supply chain among Fortune Global 500

AMR Research has released its annual Supply Chain Top 25 report. “The report identifies the top 25 manufacturers and retailers that exhibit superior supply chain capabilities and performance. The companies in this report demonstrate excellence across basic metrics related to execution – return on assets, revenue growth, and inventory turns – and are recognized by their peers and AMR Research as supply chain leaders,” Kevin Reilly reports for AMR Research.

“AMR Research analysis also shows that supply chain leadership translates into stronger market performance. Consistently, the Supply Chain Top 25 as a whole has outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, and the NASDAQ,” Reilly reports. “‘The importance of this leadership is hard to overstate,’ said Kevin O’Marah, senior vice president of research at AMR Research. ‘Companies in this year’s Supply Chain Top 25 are able to respond quickly and efficiently to opportunities arising from market or customer demand. It is not simply a matter of cutting costs.'”
