This paper examines the issue of measuring logistics costs from an applied trade policy research perspective, and identifies/maps the logistics-intensive sectors. It explores into a range of data sources and methodologies in an effort to move forward on the analysis of logistics costs from a trade policy research perspective. Going forward, it will be important to distinguish between data collection efforts that are industry-driven-such as estimates of total logistics costs in GDP and those that are research-driven.
