Dubai, UAE, 19 December 2018: Schneider Electric announced it has jumped two places to five in Gartner’s 2018 Supply Chain Top 15 for Europe, through a Press communiqué. The rankings for Europe were announced by Gartner at its annual Supply Chain Executive Conference in London, United Kingdom, the communiqué said.

Mourad Tamoud, Executive Vice President, Global Supply Chain Operations, Schneider Electric, said: “We are very pleased with breaking into the top 5 on Gartner’s Europe list. This last year has been one of intensified digital transformation for us, especially accelerated with our Smart Factory deployments in Europe (and elsewhere) as part of our Tailored Sustainable Connected 4.0 supply chain journey.

According to Gartner, there are three key supply chain trends common to European supply chain leaders:

  • Scaling digital supply chain capabilities — The use of robotic automation, sensor-based monitoring, augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI)-based customer service is now being scaled in factories, warehouses and back offices. In addition, companies are working toward the goal of end-to-end synchronisation from point-of-demand back to manufacturing and supply.
  • Customer collaboration, service and experience — Focusing on the total customer experience by better understanding customers’ use of products, predicting future demand and more quickly responding to issues, even before they appear.
  • Visibility and traceability across the end-to-end supply chain — Operating in a business ecosystem with real-time insights, to not only react upon disruptions but also be more predictive.

According to Schneider, earlier this May, the company was recognised on Gartner’s Supply Chain Top 25 for 2018, where it moved up five positions to 12 on the research company’s worldwide compilation of top supply chain performers.
