Impact of Logistics on Technical Efficiency of World Production (2007–2012).

Abstract: This research uses a production function of the type proposed by Mankiw et al. (1992) to study the effect of logistics and information and communication technologies (ITC) on domestic technical efficiency using stochastic frontier analysis for thirty-four countries over the period 2007–2012. We find that logistics and ICT are important channels for improving efficiency. This paper contributes to the literature by estimating the contribution of logistics and ICT to domestic technical efficiency. The economic impact of logistics measured using the LPI (Logistics Performance Index) on technical efficiency is estimated at 0.59 % for every 1 % increase in LPI, ceteris paribus.
