The Logistics Performance Index (LPI) is an interactive benchmarking tool created by the World Bank to help countries identify the challenges and opportunities they face in their performance on trade logistics and what they can do to improve their performance. It is a measure of the country scores on six key indicators: Customs, Infrastructure, International Shipments, Logistics Competence, Tracking & Tracing and Timeliness. Table shows the LPI indicators (on the scale of 1 to 5) of select countries on these indicators. Figure below presents the perceived performance of these indicators (on the scale of 1 to 5) of India on these 6 indicators.

Figure: LPI Indicators for India
Considering Logistics Performance Index as the average of the scores obtained on the six parameters, the correct sequence of the countries in increasing order of LPI in the year 2018 is
Austria - 3.71 + 4.18 + 3.88 + 4.08 + 4.09 + 4.25 = 24.19
UK - 3.77 + 4.03 + 3.67 + 4.05 + 4.11 + 4.33 = 23.96
USA - 3.78 + 4.05 + 3.51 + 3.87 + 4.09 + 4.08 = 23.38
Switzerland - 3.63 + 4.02 + 3.51 + 3.97 + 4.1 + 4.24 = 23.47
France - 3.59 + 4 + 3.55 + 3.84 + 4 + 4.15 = 23.13
