Selecting facility locations and transportation for multinational corporation supply chains
Date of Original Version
This research incorporates transportation factors into a facility location decision model for multinational corporations (MNC). Previous facility location models have considered the Transportation factor, but typically as a single, simplified component. The Transportation factor is actually complex, with many components such as nodes, routes, costs, time, distance, capacity, and demand. A case study is presented to demonstrate the proposed model. The integration of more Transportation factors into facility location models will transform the interdependencies between the MNC supply chain network and the Global Transportation Network from functional or transactional to a more structural and reciprocal format, thereby enhancing global competitiveness.
