Take a look at the tenth annual Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 rankings, and you’ll find a who’s-who of companies that operate in the manufacturing, retail and distribution sectors. So it should come as no surprise that for the third consecutive year, Cummins joins the likes of Apple, Amazon, Unilever and Proctor & Gamble for supply chain excellence.
In Gartner’s tenth year of ranking supply chain companies, Cummins has been recognized as one of only two industrials listed as a top 25 supply chain company. The rankings, released during Gartner’s recent Supply Chain Executive Conference, are based on financial performance and an evaluation of supply chain performance by Gartner analysts and industry peers.

“Our efforts in supply chain continue to focus on bringing value to our customers and shareholders, and I am very pleased with our progress,” said Lisa Yoder, Vice President of Global Supply Chain. “There is outstanding supply chain work being done at all levels of our company, and our Gartner ranking is good recognition of our ongoing work. We can use this recognition to stay focused on our vision and the delivery of our critical initiatives.”
At the heart of the Supply Chain Top 25 is the notion of demand-driven leadership. Gartner has been researching and writing about demand-driven practices since 2003, highlighting the journey companies are taking – from the old “push” model of supply chain to one that integrates demand, supply and product into a value network that orchestrates a profitable response to ever-shifting changes in demand.
This year, Cummins was recognized for its journey toward full end-to-end integration across its functions and business units.
Yoder added, “We are moving in the right direction and will continue to bring our Supply Chain strategies to life. We will build on the momentum we have created over the last three years to bring even more value to our customers and company.”
