The LPI is based on a worldwide survey of stakeholders on the ground providing feedback on the logistics friendliness of the countries in which they operate and those with which they trade.

Feedback from such stakeholders is supplemented with quantitative data on the performance of key components of the logistics chain in the country of work.
