The Flag of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


Saudi Arabia maintained the sixth position among the world’s 50 most competitive emerging markets, according to the annual Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index. The Kingdom took the eighth position in the domestic logistics category and 11th in international logistics. It also retained the third rank in business fundamentals and ranked fourth globally for digital readiness, a new category in the index.

Digital readiness assesses digital skills, training, Internet access, e-commerce growth, investment climate, and ability to nurture startups, as well as sustainability factors.

The 2022 Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index is the company’s 13th annual ranking of the world’s 50 leading emerging markets.

The GCC countries maintained their positions among the top 10 emerging markets in the 2022 index, where UAE ranked third and Qatar took the seventh position.

China ranked first on top of the world’s 50 most competitive emerging markets, according to the annual Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index, followed by India.
