Abstract
We consider a type of covering problem in the e-commerce enterprise retail distribution network, the problem amounts to determining the location of the warehousing and distribution center. In order to adapt to the e-commerce distribution mode and ensure timely delivery, a demand point can be covered by multiple distribution centers, a set multi-coverage model with the shortest distribution distance and the minimum construction cost as the dual target is established to determine the location of the distribution center. Finally, the example is solved in IBM CPLEX, and the calculation results verify the effectiveness of the algorithm and model.
