This report provides a basic understanding of the logistics situation of local/regional logistics sub-providers in the APEC region, and summarizes the key growth issues these SME companies are facing.

This study is also indicative of the evolving focus of APEC initiatives from resolving border issues, to investigating and resolving behind-the-border issues to trade.
