Maine Pointe Tops' List of Best Supply Chain Consulting Firms

Maine Pointe lands top ranking ahead of larger firms, based on its consistent track record of measurable ROI and focus on digital transformation

Boston, Mass., May 13, 2021 – Global supply chain and operations consulting firm Maine Pointe announced today that it has been ranked number one on Consulting US’ list of the top supply chain consulting firms in the United States. The ranking is decided based on a unique database of more than two million data points spanning insights from clients and consultants. The full list can be viewed here.

“Hard on the heels of our inclusion on Forbes’ Best Management Consulting Firms List 2021, I am delighted that Maine Pointe has been recognized as the number one supply chain consulting firm confirmed by Consulting US’ methodology,” said Steven Bowen, Founder and CEO. “This is a tremendous achievement by our team to outperform the well-known global players and niche firms out there in the market through our Total Value Optimization (TVO)™ approach. Our commitment to service excellence combined with our ability to drive accelerated and measurable digital supply chain transformation continues to set us apart from the rest.”

The 2021 list is a compilation of some of the largest and best-known global consultancies in the business, with Maine Pointe edging out the “Big Five” consultancies and dozens of other well-recognized firms. Maine Pointe’s stellar performance, consistent delivery of results and high level of return on engagements has resulted in several high-profile awards for the Boston-based consultancy. In March 2021, Maine Pointe was also recognized by Forbes in their list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms for the second consecutive year.

“Maine Pointe has delivered significant results to clients, even during the extremely difficult challenges of the pandemic, and as we now begin to emerge from that period, we are looking forward to even greater opportunities going forward. In the post-Covid era, companies will be looking not only to recover but to adapt their business models to address the demand/supply imbalances driven by growth as US and European economies re-open.” Bowen said.

Maine Pointe’s methodology, deep level of industry expertise and results-driven approach to engagements all contributed to the firm’s top ranking. The firm's clients consistently return for subsequent engagements, taking advantage of its industry-leading ROI of between 4:1 and 8:1. This not only provides a near-term benefit, it also delivers long-term, sustainable results and dramatic improvements in EBITDA.

In addition to delivering consistent, measurable results to clients, Maine Pointe is recognized as a preeminent thought leader in the industry. Maine Pointe’s popular Forbes podcast series, led by Bowen, delivers discussions with leading CEOs, including Sun-Maid CEO, Harry Overly, who talks about the evolution of the iconic brand and how supply chain improvements helped grow EBITDA for this 100-year-old company. Maine Pointe has also been featured several times on TD Ameritrade Network’s “Market on Close” news segment.

The ranking is decided based on a unique database of more than two million data points spanning insights from clients and consultants. Capabilities are assessed on the breadth and depth of supply chain offerings, advisory and implementation expertise, the track record of consulting projects delivered and the quality of thought leadership. The data set applied is refreshed on an hourly basis, ensuring the rankings are constantly updated in near real time.
