Within the framework of the Memorandum of Understanding between FIATA and the World Bank, FIATA is pleased to send this special edition of the eFlash containing the Bank’s following message.
The World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI) benchmarks logistics performance in around 160 countries. The next edition will be published in the spring of 2016.
Key to the relevance of the LPI is that the index is the voice of logistics professionals. The LPI is based on a survey among international freight forwarders who share their experience in moving goods and organizing international supply chains for their customers. This is a unique opportunity to “vote” and ultimately influence the environment that you, as professionals, operate in.
The World Bank wants to hear from FIATA’s members as part of the ongoing LPI 2015/6 survey.
FIATA is the World Bank’s most important partner in the LPI survey and it is thanks to the participation of FIATA’s members that the LPI can be published every two years.
If you are working at a freight forwarding company dealing with international shipments, we cordially invite you to take the survey at http://lpisurvey2016.worldbank.org/?comp=FEF Completing the survey should only take around 20 minutes. The survey does not seek any confidential company-specific information. Responses are anonymous.
The more freight forwarding professionals take part in the survey, the more comprehensive the report will be. All responses are kept confidential and anonymous.
Since its first edition in 2007, the LPI report “Connecting to Compete: Trade Logistics in the Global Economy” has drawn worldwide attention on the importance of the logistics industry and the contribution of good logistics performance to competiveness and economic growth. The LPI is widely used by policymakers and international organizations in designing reforms, investments and international agreements to improve supply chains and facilitate transportation and trade all over the globe.
Please participate in this year’s survey. It is very important to us to have your views!
