WESCO Named Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2021 Top Supply Chain Project

PITTSBURGH, June 16, 2021 - Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, selected WESCO, a world-class provider of supply chain solutions, as a recipient of the Top Supply Chain Projects Award for 2021.

The Top Supply Chain Projects Award (formerly known as SDCE 100) spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across a range of supply chain functions. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.

TOP Supply Chain Projects

“The supply chain industry has been challenged with a host of supply chain disruptions over the last year. Yet, the winners on this list continued to retool and innovate,” said Marina Mayer, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “Whether it be moving a customer to a cloud-based solution or implementing a more sustainable shipping option, these top supply chain projects reflect the supply chain industry’s strength and resilience to overcome disruptions and work better, smarter and more efficiently in the years ahead.”

In 2020, when WESCO completed its merger with Anixter, it began a supply chain network redesign project for the combined organization. Redesigning the supply chain networks consisted of creating a digital twin model with real business constraints and service levels to enable data-driven decision making.  

“We are honored to be named 2021 Top Supply Chain Project for the second time. Our primary goal has always been to provide the best service and solutions to our customers. The robust modeling capabilities we gained as a result of this supply chain project will allow us to provide our customers with a higher level of service,” said Hemant Porwal, executive vice president of supply chain and operations at WESCO, “We look forward to continuing to leverage the digital twin to streamline our supply chain and operations as the needs of our customers evolve.”
