Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index 2012

The Agility-sponsored Emerging Markets Logistics Index 2012 was published today. Compiled by Transport Intelligence, the annual Index spotlights 41 emerging markets and ranks them by their investment potential and progress each year. Attractiveness is measured by: market size and growth, market compatibility (foreign direct investment, security, urbanization and wealth distribution) and market connectedness (international and domestic transport infrastructure). As part of the Index, 550 senior logistics executives were surveyed, making this the biggest survey to date in the emerging markets logistics sector. For the first time, the Index offers trade lane analysis from 2005 to 2011.

Not surprising, Brazil, China and India remains high on the list, and the so-called "Arab Spring" countries are now viewed as more attractive places to do business.
