Özet

Logistics centers emerge as a solution for freight transportation which becomes more important both on an intra-urban and regional scale with the reorganization of life areas in the cities. The selection of appropriate locations for these centers is as important as the determination of the need for logistics centers. In order to obtain better solutions, accurate criteria should be determined and a proper methodology should be selected. Considering the importance of the topic, a detailed literature survey has been carried out and articles, conference papers and postgraduate thesis have been classified. During the literature review, the studies about logistics centers were restricted by choosing 35 studies containing the location selection problem. The literature review was examined under two sub-titles; first, the models used in the solution of the problem and second, criteria used in the evaluation process. The frequency of decision-making techniques and decision criteria usage has also been presented.
