2021 Volume 45 Issue 3 Pages 232-241


Among advanced logistics countries and regions, which has the strongest competitive power? Both the World Bank research, based on results from a global scale questionnaire, and my comparative empirical analysis on the competitive power of major logistically advanced countries demonstrate that the EU has an overwhelming competitive advantage. The purpose of this paper is to endeavor to find the source of the EU’s logistics competitive power. After considering alternate behavior of air and sea transport in major countries developed with the EU as the export base using two axes analysis for a postponement business model based on the expected freight rate and direct investment behavior, which is the trigger for such a model, it can be concluded that the EU’s logistics competitive power lies in their ability to rationally build an excellent business model that has the ability to self-adjust, which distinguishes it from others.
