Abstract

Decisions about the location of the company or logistic hub are a complex process that requires thorough analysis of various factors. The aim of this paper is to identify the most important factors which influence the location of the storage facility. The theories and methods of choosing localization are discussed in the theoretical part of paper. In empirical research, via method of AHP, the attractiveness of the localization of various Polish cities was compared. Selected municipalities were collated in terms of the following criteria: price of land, access to infrastructure and to qualified personnel, costs of labour, distance to sales and supply markets.

Keywords: Warehouse, location factors, Analytic Hierarchy Process
