According to the data of the World Bank, the Logistics Performance Index has been compiled since 2007. It is used as a benchmarking tool 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 World Bank has produced the Logistics Performance Index about every two years since 2007, in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016.

The LPI ranks 160 countries on their trade logistics performance using six components: customs performance, infrastructure, the arrangement of international shipments, the quality of logistics services, the ability to track consignment, and the timeliness of shipments.
