The top supply chain consulting firms in the US for 2021

12 May 2021 2 min. read has released its first-ever ranking of the top supply chain consulting firms in the United States. 

When the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, the world of supply chain is going to look markedly different. To adapt to the new normal and remain competitive, supply chain leaders need to redesign their supply chains, building in flexibility and agility without weakening competitiveness, and adopt a data-driven approach to enhance supply chain visibility and operational resilience. 

To meet that challenge, leaders often turn to supply chain consultants, who help them design and execute strategies to navigate their most pressing challenges. But with 250+ notable supply chain consulting firms active in the billion-dollar segment of the over $60 billion US consulting industry, identifying those consultancies best equipped to deliver results can be a tricky task.
