Trade log?st?cs performances.

India and China were the top two over-performers among developing economies in terms of improved logistics performance despite lower levels of per capita income, says a World Bank Group survey on international trade logistics.

The ?Connecting to Compete 2010: Trade Logistics in the Global Economy? ranked 155 economies based on Logistics Performance Indicators compiled from information provided by international freight forwarders and express carriers on the logistics process of the countries where they trade and operate in.

The survey"s top overall performers came from high income economies able to implement more improvements in their global and regional supply chains although selected lower income countries were found to perform better than what their income level would dictate. The over-performers include China (27), India (47), Uganda (66), Vietnam (53), Thailand (35), the Philippines (44) and South Africa (28).

Regionally the top performing economies were India (47) from South Asia; China (27) from East Asia; South Africa (28) from Africa; Poland (30) from Central and Eastern Europe; Brazil (41) from Latin America; and Lebanon (33) from the Middle East.

?Economic competitiveness is relentlessly driving countries to strengthen performance, and improving trade logistics is a smart way to deliver more efficiencies, lower costs and added economic growth,? said World Bank Group President Robert B. Zoellick, in a statement. ?Streamlining the connections among markets, manufacturers, farmers and consumers offers tremendous growth and investment opportunities and should be a top focus for developing country growth strategies.?

Germany"s economy was ranked as having the most efficient logistics in the world. The logistics performance of an economy is affected by the quality of its public sector institutions and the streamlining of border clearance processes in agencies. Economies which reported better logistics and trade facilitation reforms compared to the last survey were Colombia, Brazil, and Tunisia.

Turkey ranked 39th among 155 countries in the World Bank's Logistics Performance Index, an assessment of the performance of countries in the areas of customs, transportation, and infrastructure.Turkey ranked 39th right below Slovakia with 3.22 pts and 71.4% of performance.

Overall, the survey indicates improving trade logistics around the world although it notes that more development needs to be enforced to nurture growth that would significantly improve global business.
