Doing Business records the time and cost associated with the logistical process of exporting and importing goods. Doing Business measures the time and cost (excluding tariffs) associated with three sets of procedures—documentary compliance, border compliance and domestic transport—within the overall process of exporting or importing a shipment of goods. The trading across borders indicator set assesses the efficiency of trade processes related to control agencies, customs and border authorities, among others. The most recent round of data collection for the project was completed in May 2020. See the methodology for more information. Video presentation of the methodology is also available.
