Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index 2014 Suggests Optimism Despite Emerging Markets Slowdown

The survey examines and ranks 45 major emerging markets and identifies the attributes that make a market attractive for investment by logistics companies, air cargo carriers, shipping lines, freight forwarders and distribution companies. The Index also looks at the inter-relationships among emerging economies and at trade flows between the emerging and developed worlds.
