A Multicriteria Warehouse Location Model

The warehouse location problem involves a firm's overall distribution requirements, transportation costs, fixed facility costs, and a number of other considerations. Multiple and conflicting objectives involved in the location decision have been well recognized. Yet their considerations have not been adequately addressed in analysis. This paper presents an integer goal programming model for a multicriteria warehouse location problem of a restaurant equipment distribution firm. This approach appears to be a promising methodology for evaluating alternative warehouse locations when a multiplicity of conflicting objectives are involved.
