FIATA wishes to highlight that logistics connectivity is a critical for gains to be achieved in productivity, growth and employment in a macroeconomic context. According to lifecycle theory, when the logistics index exceeds the equilibrium (2127.5), the logistics industry could have a zooming effect on economy; contrastively, if the logistics index is less than this level, the logistics industry will hinder the whole economy.
Given that supply chain and logistics processes are deeply embedded in the value creation throughout different sectors and industries, it is clear that the logistics industry is of equal strategic importance in achieving sustainability as it is in terms of economic development. Additionally, as the logistics industry is expected to continue growing, so will its energy consumption and GHG emissions, unless changes are made.
