Suppose we want to maximize our profit, selling toys from our facotry in Italy to different countries in the world (China, Spain, Bulgary, Denmark). First of all we should choose where to locate our point of sales. We are facing a localization problem that we could cope with one of the main methods of logistics design: “weighted method”
|distance from Factory||5||60||10||20||20|
|rent prices of the store||4||10||30||10||50|
Once decided the location of the selling point, we should consider the transportation costs to trade our toys.
|UNIT COST||store 1||store 2||store 3||capacity|
