ABSTRACT

The article deals with the possibilities of optimizing the postal transportation network with respect to planned road infrastructure. The research adopted in this article uses allocation models within graph theory to obtain results for addressed optimization problem. The article presents and compares two types of these models – p-median and uncapacitated fixed charge facility location model. The latter is subsequently applied on the postal network to determine the optimal location of postal facilities while minimizing costs. Moreover, the article describes the possibilities of identifying and calculating input variables of the used model, creating the underlying network, as well as possible further improvements of obtained solution. The results can serve as a basis for
