Digitalization drives supply chain consulting growth

Consulting subway map Europe 2020

In 2019, over 70% of Europe’s supply chain consultancy firms completed more projects, hired more consultants and invoiced more billable hours than in 2018. These are the key findings from Supply Chain Movement’s own study of 58 consultancy firms with offices in Europe. Each year, Supply Chain Movement surveys all major European consultancy firms that offer supply chain advice and positions them on its popular Subway Map. This is the seventh consecutive edition. The map is based on information provided by the consultancy firms themselves.

Who has their own subway station on the Consulting Subway Map?

A combination of the number of consulting projects completed, the market share by revenue for each specific area of advice, the size of the company and the degree of specialization determines whether a company gets its own subway station on the relevant line, thus visualizing the company’s proven experience in a particular area of supply chain expertise.

Who is included?

To be included on this subway map, a consultancy firm must have offices in more than one European country, although a few exceptions have been made for supply chain consultancy firms with a truly international customer base. For each specific area of advice, the consultancy firms were also asked to name the three competitors that they come up against most regularly when pitching. Companies that named each other most often are located closest together on the map – the Big Four in the so-called Accountancy Area, the IT consultants in the neighbouring Technology Area or the strategy consultants in the Corporate District.

The rest of the subway map is populated by boutique supply chain consulting firms in varying shapes and sizes.
