ABSTRACT

This paper is focused on area identification to find a proper location for the specific port logistic center in a certain territory by applying the particular method of operational research. Graph theory offers a useful tool for solving such problems in transportation infrastructure development. The type of the network optimization technique depends on problem definition. In the first chapter, we have explained some of the algorithms often applied for similar purposes. In this case, the focus is on Minimum Spanning Three algorithm. Based on well-known Prim’s and Kruskal’s algorithms, some modifications are introduced, to improve the processing speed and memory consumption. The next four chapters describe individual parameters, perspectives, requirements, and financing details for building new combined transport terminals as well as a planned port logistics center. The subsequent, the most important, chapter presents the model example for specifying the proper location of a given port logistics center when using the method of operational research.
