Logistics plays an important role in the economic development of many countries. An integrated component of logistics management is physical distribution, in which distribution centres are essential nodes of the logistics network. The location of distribution centres is a fundamental issue for many logistics firms and logistics function of manufacturing companies, since it has the great impact on the overall physical distribution costs.
