In-country logistics: main findingsBroadly positive trends in customs, ICTs, and private logistics services Other border agencies often lag behind customs in terms of efficiencyImporters in low performing countries face nearly twice as many border agencies and documents as in high performing countries Uncertainty of clearance procedures and quality problems impact supply chain reliability and performance

Inefficient regulation of core logistics services increases prices and reduces quality Physical infrastructure remains a major constraint in many countries37
