The Indices track the performance of the global logistics and logistics technology themes. This includes companies with at least 50% (25% for current components) of their revenue or operating assets operating in the logistics industry following sub-themes. Sub-themes are representative of groups of companies offering distinct products or services related to a theme.

“Logistics enables the smooth and steady growth of trade and e-commerce,  ensuring the speed, efficiency and reliability of the world’s essential supply chains”, said Steven Schoenfeld, CEO of MV Index Solutions.  “We are very pleased to launch two first-of-their-kind indices tracking the companies leading the expansion of supply chain logistics, indices that deliver exposure to firms providing critical services that are the foundation of world trade and economic growth.”

Capping factors are applied to avoid an overweighting of single index companies.
