    Today, logistics systems and management are considered key for the growth of the perishable food sector, and particularly for those supply chains that involve smallholders. However, there is limited information on the state of logistics systems for food products in most non-industrialized countries. The present report seeks to help fill this gap by providing information on logistics in the produce subsector of five countries in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region. The methodology used t o develop the report includes: (i) country appraisals, with fieldwork and desk study; (ii) an expert meeting to discuss findings in the appraisals; (iii) a symposium with experts from the Caribbean subregion; and (iv) subsequent integration of all findings, with background information and an overall analysis. The document describes the general principles used to determine the performance of logistics systems and highlights key limitations of logistics in produce supply chains. Identified challen ges are described, taking into consideration supply chains with involvement of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A subsequent discussion reveals logistics failures and recommends priorities for action depending on the scenario in each country.
