NATIONAL LOGISTICS INDEX (NLI)
Recently, trade and transport facilitation received recognition and attention in international logistics and supply chains. It will impact the overall performance of firm, industry and even national level. In global supply chain, the current practice of global sourcing is aimed to explore global efficiency in the delivery of products and services.
Our current research identifies the key components that contribute the most in logistics performance. We are looking further on seven components namely
🔅 Clearance procedures
🔅 Logistics infrastructure
🔅 The quality of logistics services and competency
🔅 Track and trace
🔅 Logistics cost
🔅 Environment Friendly
