Welcome to the Logistics Performance Index! The LPI is an interactive benchmarking tool created to help countries identify the challenges and opportunities they face in their performance on trade logistics and what they can do to improve their performance. The LPI is based on two components:

First, a worldwide survey of international logistics operators on the ground (global freight forwarders and express carriers), providing feedback on the logistics “friendliness” of the countries with which they trade. The International LPI 2023 allows for comparisons across 139 countries.

The second component of the LPI is based on granular high frequency information on maritime shipping and container tracking, postal and air freight activities that was collected and made available to LPI by several data partners.

The new supply chain tracking indicators are provided as supplemental material to the survey based (International) LPI. The new indicators are not included in the country scores and ranks available in the International LPI section. Hence, the LPI measures logistics performance in several dimensions and offers two different perspectives: one based on the perceptions of international logistics professionals assessing their partner countries, the other one measuring the actual speed of global trade by using actual supply chain tracking information.

International LPI

Provides qualitative evaluations of a country in six areas by its trading partners—logistics professionals working outside the country.

Supply chain tracking data

Indicators derived from the granular high-frequency information on actual movements of containers, containerships, air cargo, and postal shipments (parcels).

The former “Domestic LPI” was discontinued after the 2018 LPI edition. The results from 2007 to 2018 are available upon request by emailing LPI@worldbank.org.
