    Abstract

    Settlement of distribution centre (DC) problem in order to support large-scale logistic operation was offered by the joint research company, in which derivation of optimal placement assuming the shuttle transportation between multiple DCs and customers is desired. In this study, area constrained DC placement problem is often discussed in logistics industry is picked up and, aiming to the effectiveness of the proposed solution, the solving model based on genetic algorithm (GA) is developed followed by its application to the case problems. Various cases are supposed such as the case that part of the position of DC is specified, the case that the area should be covered by the DC and the case that there is more than one DC. Logistics industry, in general, desires to developing the design model corresponding to these conditions.
