Analysis of Logistics Performances of Central Asian Turkish Republics within the Context of Logistics Performance Index
Lojistik Performans Endeksi Kapsamında Orta Asya Türk Cumhuriyetleri’nin Lojistik Performanslarının Analizi


Along with the rapidly developing industrialization and technology, companies have moved to markets outside the regions they usually serve and have tried to supply different regions of the world. This trend has been increasing day by day and the world has transformed into a single market. With this globalization process, the trade volume between the countries and the continents has reached unprecedented numbers which has directly affected the logistics industry. It is a challenging process to move such a large volume of goods between countries and continents safely and quickly. It also significantly affects the cost of doing business. For these reasons, logistics processes need to be managed efficiently and effectively which in turn ensures competitive advantage. Thus, logistics process efficiency and effectiveness have gained importance and a need to measure logistics performance has emerged. The World Bank has started to publish the Logistics Performance Index (LPI) every two years by measuring the logistics performances of the countries using a set of six criteria. This study examines the logistics performances of Central Asian Turkish Republics (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan) within the scope of Logistics Performance Index (LPI). In addition, the logistics performances of these countries were compared with the performances of the countries in the same region.
