Abstract: This paper presents an alternative to the location of distribution centres considering a multi-objective model minimising insecurity cost and road access for a case study in the City of Barranquilla (Colombia). For the solution of the model, 15 different scenarios of variation of the importance of the proposed objectives are considered. As a basis for the design of the modelling, the characterisation and classification of the variables with the highest incidence in the location of distribution centres or warehouses are posed. It is possible to demonstrate the impact of the evaluation and analysis of the mathematical model for the location of this type of facility.
