Abstract—Based on the introduction of the concepts of logistics and logistics center, this paper analyzed the status and problems of Jilin Province’s logistics center, and proposed the steps, principles and factors for site selection of logistics center. Then by listing and comparing nine kinds of logistics center site selection method, including Analytic Hierarchy Process, Cluster Algorithm, Genetic Algorithm, Weight Grade Method, P-Median Method, System Simulation Method, Fuzzy quality function method, Dijkstra Method, we chose the best site selection method, namely the center of gravity method. Finally, this paper found out the exact logistics center location of Jilin Province with the center of gravity method.

Index Terms—center of gravity method, logistics, logistics center, principles, site selection, steps
