Preliminary results reported in Moscow
The preliminary results of my research regarding the allocation of Logistics Centres in Russia were reported at the X International Student, Graduate and Postgraduate Research Conference on “Contemporary Problems and Trends in Logistics and Supply Chain Management Development” organised by School of Logistics at the Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow.
I participated in the section “Logistics and supply chain management” and presented some results of my project about the selection of optimal locations for Logistics Centres development in Russia. In my analysis I used geospatial data on railway networks and city locations. Applying network analysis methods, I chose the best places for the creation of specific area hubs, where all the activities relating to transport, logistics and goods distribution would be carried out.
At the current moment, the list of top-10 candidate cities is as follows:
- Nizhny Novgorod
This research is ongoing, so the list will undergo changes.
The Committee of the conference gave me the first place in the section. More information about the conference you can find on the HSE web site (in Russian language).
