FACTORS AFFECTING FREIGHT FACILITY LOCATION PREFERENCE

This paper presents an analysis of factors affecting freight facility location, using a multinomial logit model formulation. A factor analysis is used to minimize correlation between attributes in the model. The modelling approach is then shown to be a suitable and potentially valuable approach to analysing facility location. For the data used (which was collected in Melbourne, Australia), the model calibration shows that the location choice decision can be modelled using four attributes of the alternative locations - a truck transport attribute, a market attribute, site availability and labour availability. Of these, the first tow were the most important. (TRRL)
