Global supply chains require all actors to work effectively to reduce time and cost and to improve the reliable and smooth flow of goods and services. Identifying the logistics service performance, in the countries along a supply chain, is of vital importance to a variety of different stakeholders, including transport operators, logistics service providers, users and, of course, national economies. Applying a comparative study method, using data from the logistics performance index (LPI) of 2007 and 2012, plus other sources, the current research assesses the logistics performance of selected (BRICS) developing and developed countries. The study finds that, over the period, some countries have progressed and others have not, against different indices of logistics performance, and thus different levels of progress have been achieved in different countries. The study recommends that certain country-specific actions are needed achieve in the less-well performing areas of logistics services.
