Locating Manufacturer Distribution Centers by a Fixed-Charge Model: A Case Study of Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor Inc.

In this study, the authors present a decision support model for a strategic plan for establishing liquor distribution centers in Taiwan. A fixed-charge model is modified, taking into account the inbound and outbound transportation costs associated with the delivery centers, as well as the variable and fixed components of the distribution center facility costs. The values of the model's associated parameters were collected and estimated, yielding a total cost as well as the number and locations of the distribution centers.
