The problem of optimal location of the military logistics center

The article considers the problem of determining the optimal location of the logistics center in the area. To solve the problem, it is proposed to place the logistics center at one of the nodes of the transport infrastructure. A mathematical model is given to determine the economically viable location of the logistics center on the basis of hypotheticalinformation about the coordinates of the terminal where the logistical resources are received in the transport infrastructure and the military units to be serviced. Taking into account other important factors, the algorithm is described for calculating transportation costs for each case where the center is located at the node and their ranking in ascending order in order to accurately determine the location of the logistics center (assuming the annual recurring costs do not change).
