Supply chain description
Society: Sustainable Procurement; Company: 50-State Summary


The vast majority (73%) of Allstate’s supply chain spend consists of professional services (such as advertising, contract programming and lead generation) and claims contractors. The total monetary value of payments made to suppliers is approximately $2.7 billion. Professional services generally support the operations of the company, while claims contractors support periods that typically bring about claims staffing shortages (e.g., natural disasters).
