Warehouse Location Analysis

If you’re planning a warehouse move, use our services to find the optimal new warehouse location

Identifying optimal locations for warehouses and other fixed facilities within the supply chain is a major decision for any business. Warehouse location drives transportation costs, and where new supply routes are being introduced, or an existing supply chain is being re-engineered, then full and comprehensive warehouse location analysis needs to be undertaken.

Location analysis requires applied mathematics and is often referred to as ‘Centre of Gravity Modelling’, although it’s also known as p-media and the grid method. In principle, the aim of the centre of gravity model is to identify the geographical location where distance and/or transport costs are minimised.
