About  LEADS
LEADS is basically a measure like World Bank’s biannual Logistics Performance Index (LPI), on which India was ranked 35 among 160 countries in 2016, up from 54 in 2014.
LEADS is based on eight parameters such as infrastructure, track and trace, services, timeliness, competitiveness of pricing, operating environment, the safety of cargo and regulatory process.
The LEADS index, according to the report, provides useful insights into "how stakeholders perceive international trade logistics performance across the states and UTs".
The study is based on a perception-based survey of 2,885 respondents across the country over a six-week period.
