About LEADS report

  • LEADS was conceived on the lines of the Logistics Performance Index of World Bank in 2018 and has evolved over time.
  • The Report is released every year by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry with the main objective of ranking Indian states and UTs on the basis of the efficiency of their respective logistics ecosystems. The index is an indicator of the efficiency of logistical services necessary for promoting exports and economic growth.
  • The index aims to boost the logistics performance across India, which is critical for reducing the cost of transactions and boosting international and domestic trade.
  • It provides three performance categories – Achievers (states and UTs achieving 90 per cent or more), Fast Movers (states and UTs scoring between 80 and 90 per cent), and Aspirers (states and UTs with percentage scoring below 80 per cent).
  • The LEADS survey assesses viewpoints of various users and stakeholders across value chain including shippers, terminal infrastructure service providers, logistics service providers, transporters and government agencies to understand the enabler and impediments to the logistics ecosystem in the country.
