Background: Countries that are efficient in terms of logistics infrastructure have easy access to different markets in terms of production and foreign trade and thus achieve economic prosperity. In order to compare the performance of countries in logistics processes, there are international logistics indexes published by various organizations for different country categories. Each of these indexes is used to follow the performance of the logistics infrastructures of the countries and the logistics operations accordingly.

Methods: The aim of this study is calculation and comparison of the integrated logistics performance of 101 countries with the ROC-based WASPAS method and the presence of spatial autocorrelation between the obtained integrated logistics performance values by using four different international logistics indexes (Logistics Performance Index (LPI) (2018), Liner Shipping Connectivity Index (LSCI) (2021), Enabling Trade Index (ETI) (2016), and Availability and Quality of Transport Infrastructures (AQTI) (2016)) data.

Results: It has been determined that the top five countries with the highest integrated logistics performance are Singapore, Germany, China, Japan, England, and USA, respectively. On the other hand, Sierra Leone, Congo, Mauritania, Gabon, Liberia, and Madagascar are the weakest countries. Integrated logistics performance of a country is generally significantly affected by the logistics performance of the neighboring country, albeit limited. This is especially prevailing for USA, Canada, and Western Europe.

Conclusion: For the global integrated logistics performance analysis, countries with strong production capacity and logistics infrastructure are in first place, and there is a positive spatial autocorrelation in terms of integrated logistics performance among some countries in Western Europe and the Americas.
