The study aims to examine the effect of environment and economic variables on logistic performance in India. In order to study the long run and short run association between the variables the study employed auto regressive distribution lag (ARDL) approach on a time series data from 2007 to 2018. The result revealed that foreign direct investment (FDI) has a positive relation with LPI whereas fossil fuel consumption in both the short and long run has a negative relation. On the other hand, GDP per capita has a negative relation with LPI while total greenhouse gas emissions has a positive relation, which is a sign of concern for environment sustainability. In the recent report published by the World Bank India’s rank has slipped down from 35th to 44th position worldwide whereby all the six dimensions have shown a downward trend. India being one of the largest customer oriented market would negatively affect the world economy if its logistics operation are poorly driven. This study highlights few reason why India lacks behind in its logistics performance and provide suggestion how India can improve its logistic operation at global level.
