LLamasoft drives supply chain excellence for Europe’s leading companies

Ann Arbor, Mich. and Birmingham, UK (July 31, 2020) – LLamasoft, the leading provider of AI-powered supply chain analytics software to 750 of the world’s leading brands, has supported supply chain optimisation initiatives for nine of the European companies recognised as part of The Gartner 2020 Supply Chain Top 15 for Europe1. The annual Supply Chain Top 15 report showcases the best practices of Europe’s Top 15 company supply chains for 2020 in conjunction with The Gartner Supply Chain Global Top 25 for 2020. Supply chain leaders should leverage this research to be inspired by Europe’s Top 15, especially during times of disruption.

60% of the 15 companies listed in the 2020 report have utilised LLamasoft supply chain software. In addition, Unilever – the only European headquartered company to feature in Gartner’s Masters category for long term leaders – is also a LLamasoft customer.

“As the Gartner report highlights, scenario planning is crucial for recovery. Leading companies are defining scenarios to predict how markets will recover post lockdown with a focus on accelerating competitiveness in the recovery curve, while also building in risk-mitigation strategies in case of further waves of COVID-19,” says Slimane Allab, General Manager and SVP of LLamasoft in Europe. “We believe that better supply chain decisions begin with the right data foundation, and that enterprise decisioning platforms powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms hold the key in allowing companies to make faster, smarter and cross-functional decisions across the extended supply chain.”

LLamasoft delivers an enterprise-class analytic software platform called llama.ai that creates a “digital twin”, a true end-to-end digital representation of the global supply chain and leverages advanced AI algorithms to enable decisions along strategic, tactical and operational time horizons. LLamasoft’s applications and innovative solutions accelerate adoption of AI with deep expertise in machine learning, optimisation, simulation and advanced analytics capabilities to help business leaders design operational strategies and put the power of algorithms into the hands of business users to support data-driven decision making across the enterprise.

About the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25

The Supply Chain Top 25 ranking comprises two main components: business performance and opinion. Business performance in the form of public financial and ESG (environmental, social, governance) 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 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.
