Development of Eurasian logistic performance in improving management of international supply chain

Zbigniew Bentyn


Business ties between Asia and Europe force improvement in logistics performance of countries that lie on the path between those continents. Logistically improved infrastructure is a key success factor in increasing trade and efficiency of international logistic operations. The new silk road initiative is an opportunity to develop logistic performance and thus improve strategical management of resources in a long Eurasian supply chain. The northern branch of this route leads through following countries: China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, and Germany. Logistical performance varies from country to country and moreover is dynamic in its nature. Many factors influence the speed and costs of transportation operations performed in a specific environment. Thanks to the analysis of the historical data gathered by World Bank it is possible to examine progress made by the particular country. The time period from the first diagnosis publicized in 2007 to recent research in 2016 serves as a measurement of potential accomplishment in the logistic performance of the country. The efficient land connection between Europe and Asia is a great opportunity for international supply chains to improve agility and responsiveness to market needs. The purpose of this paper is to present the changes over time, measured by the logistic performance index. That helps to create the path of progress in achieving the desired performance. The result visualize a potential to improve in each country and effectively may improve an efficiency of the whole northern route.
