January 8 - Global logistics provider Agility has announced that its annual Emerging Markets Logistics Index will be published on January 15, 2013.

Last year's Index noted that while developed markets stalled due to the ongoing European financial crisis and faltering US economy, emerging markets enjoyed healthy growth. It also identified Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) as the likely places to emerge as logistics hubs over the next five years.

The 2013 Agility Emerging Market Logistics Index will analyse how these predictions have developed, scrutinise the performance of the BRIC nations and identify the next generation of high-growth economies.
