Location planning of logistics depots and customer allocation are important decisions in supply chain network design. A carefully planned network design positively impacts the economics of business organizations and their competitivity in national and international markets. In this paper, we present a genetic algorithm based approach for solving location allocation planning problem of logistics depots. The problem is solved considering multiple criteria such as minimal distance, travel cost, travel time etc. A numerical application is provided to demonstrate the proposed approach.
