Abstract
When countries evaluate innovation and logistics as a whole and carry out activities to complement each other, countries will be able to specialize in the field of innovation and logistics and, accordingly, ensure the development of innovation and logistics dimensions globally. In this context, in research, the relations between the innovation and logistics dimensions within the scope of the global innovation and logistics performance values of G-7 countries, which have more than half of the global wealth in the world and have a certain economic development and size, were evaluated in multi-dimensional terms. According to the findings, it is determined that there is a significant, positive, and very high-level relationship between innovation and logistics dimensions. The fact that the relationship between innovation and logistics is very high has been evaluated as one of the factors or reasons that G7 countries have economic size, development, and global wealth. Again, according to the findings, it was concluded that the innovation dimension contributed more to the relationship between innovation and logistics dimension than the logistics dimension. Therefore, it is considered that these countries place more importance on the innovation dimension in ensuring the relationship between innovation and logistics dimensions.
