Introduction: The article presents the thesis that the selection of the optimal site for the location of a logistics centre requires the selection of a number of criteria that determine the success of the investment. In addition to the points of space where different types of transport, more complex traits should also be considered. These include the availability of markets, economic zones and the potential of the area in terms of by social and economic factors.
Methods and Results: The paper adopted the method of multi-criteria comparative analysis, which can be used in a simple and clear way to establish a hierarchy of the most favourable locations of logistics centres. In this method, the final set of criteria is not strictly defined and can be supplemented by criteria that are relevant to a particular investor and the investment. When deciding on financial investments, it is advisable to consider a number of criteria, (including all kinds of indicators simple and discounted stimulators and development), which were chosen on the basis of knowledge and literature, and tested on the example of the Lubuskie Province. This approach allows the use of the proposed method regardless of legal conditions and geographical location.
Conclusions: The problem of the choice of location, as well as connecting logistics centres within them, should be one of the most important tasks of planned developments in the field of spatial policy. The economic development of the region may depend on a logistics centre, which plans streamlined freight transport, reduces the cost of its operation and shortens delivery times. The applied optimization method allows to clearly determine the location of the logistics center together with the possibility of its use in various European and world countries.
