EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, June 5, 2012 -- Amber Road, a leading provider of Global Trade Management (GTM) solutions, announced today that seven of the top ten companies listed in the Gartner 2012 Supply Chain Top 25 use its solutions. This is an increase from 2011, when six of the top ten were Amber Road customers.
This is the eighth year that Gartner has compiled the list of supply chain innovators. According to the research firm, "Every year, Gartner identifies the companies that push the envelope of supply chain innovation." They noted in the report that "many of this year's Supply Chain Top 25 companies were impacted by natural disasters, such as the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and the massive flooding in Thailand…Overall, leaders have remained focused throughout the past year on building resiliency into their global supply chains, and we see it continuing to be a highly valued supply chain characteristic."
"Today, a disruption in one corner of the world can have a cascading effect on a global supply chain and impede a company's ability to deliver product," said Jim Preuninger, CEO of Amber Road. "It's no wonder that resiliency and flexibility have bubbled to the top of executives' priority lists. We congratulate our customers who were included in the Gartner Top 25, and we're proud to support their efforts via effective global trade management."
