Press Release : Thailand rose 13 spots in World Bank’s Logistics Index

Thailand’s ranking in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index 2018 (LPI) has improved by 13 spots to 32nd place from 45th place in the previous index, securing 2nd place in ASEAN after Singapore and 7th in Asia. 

Mr. Kobsak Pootrakul, Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office said,“ The government is quite upbeat that the index will significantly improve over the next two years because the government has already invested heavily in infrastructure development and law reforms.”

The logistics index measures customs procedures; infrastructure development such as ports, railways, highways and related technology; international shipments; logistics competence; tracking and tracing; and timeliness. Thailand's rise in the index reflects the government's commitment to improve Thailand’s competitiveness and to increase ease of doing business for both local and foreign operators.
