We explore the concept of macro-institutional environmental complexity surrounding logistics systems. Macro-institutional environmental complexity is formulated as the complexity posed by the diversity of macro-institutions and infrastructural capabilities of external environments involved in global supply chain logistics operations. This concept is then translated into a simple Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) model evaluating the macro-institutional logistics systems environmental complexity of the four Nordic countries.
