In good shape?



Quality of trade and transport-related infrastructure If the surrounding conditions are not right, plannable goods logistics becomes a matter of luck. Decrepit roads and railways as well as poor telephone and data connections can seriously impede the movement of goods.

The result: All those who transport goods by rail or road in Germany can do so with the good feeling of being able to use the world’s best infrastructure. All in all, six of the top ten states are located in Europe. But even in Europe, the transportation of goods can quickly turn into an adventure: Albania, which is ranked last of the European countries, has received an evaluation by the World Bank that is not much better than that of Afghanistan.
