Ranking Methodology

1. The major logistics companies in India with net sales more than INR 150 cr and market cap more than INR 100cr are filtered out.

2. Their net profit value is also taken into consideration.

3. These parameters are chosen because any logistic company can be a market leader if it serves more customers and moves more material leading to large sales. But not only sales can be the sole criteria we need to check its market worth as well as profits to analyze the growth rate in near future.

4. To rank these companies “ z value normalization “ is adopted.

5. Standard deviation and mean value for each parameter column is calculated.

6. Then z score is calculated for every company corresponding to each ie sales, profit and market cap.

Formula z score= (net sales of company A – mean value of net sales for all companies)/(standard deviation of net sales for all companies)

7. Similarly value is calculated for all other parameters - profit and market cap.

8. Then final rating is prepared by assigning equal weightage to all these z score which are then added and averaged.

Final rating company A = (Z score for Sales + Z score for profit + Z score for market cap)/(no of parameters)

9. Companies are then ranked in descending order as per the final rating.
