The latest World Bank ranking has revealed that India has jumped 19 places in the global logistics performance, reflecting the improvement in movement of goods inside the country thus facilitating better trade.
The World Bank in its latest once-in-two-year Logistics Performance Index (LPI) said India is now ranked 35th as against the 54th spot it occupied in the previous 2014 report.
