Study on Distribution Center Location Model based on Economics and Timeliness

Kaifan Dong, Haomiao Li


Location of distribution center is the key step for logistics system optimization. Reasonable location can not only save cost, but also improve the service level of logistics system. This paper studies the distribution center location problem based on economics and timeliness. Firstly, a model with time constraint is proposed to optimize location under target of minimizing total cost. Secondly, the sequential quadratic programming, suitable for solving this model, is discussed. Finally, a distribution center location case study is presented. The results indicate that the location model and SQP can optimize the distribution center location with time constraint effectively.
