Modeling Multi-Objective Facility Location Allocation Problems within Green Logistics Network Design

Sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) has been of considerable interest for the last decade. In order to model a multi-echelon logistics network with emission consideration, a multi-objective facility location model for a multi-echelon green logistics network is proposed. The objectives of the model are (i) minimizing total logistics cost and (ii) minimizing total amount of greenhouse gas emission. Besides, return hauls are considered simultaneously. The model is solved with ɛ-constraint method. To demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of the proposed model, the computational results derived from CPLEX based on a test case are also presented. Moreover, sensitivity analysis on parameter is performed. The results indicate that the model serves as an efficient tool for handling the issue of sustainable supply chain construction.
