Logistics Reform for Low-Value Shipments

Peterson Study. Policy Brief:

Facilitating trade is essential for countries that aspire to compete in the global economy. Low transactions costs, speed, and predictability are all ingredients of a good logistics system. The payoff is large. According to a World Bank (2010) evaluation of nearly 155 countries, improving logistics for countries at the same level of per capita income can increase GDP by 1 percent and two-way merchandise trade by 2 percent.
