The current trend in logistics and the distribution chain is the pressure to reduce the delivery time, which was triggered by the e-commerce trend. To shorten the delivery time, it is necessary to choose the location of the warehouse or distribution center to maximize efficiency. Therefor is this article focused on warehouse location problem and chosen methods to solve this problem. It is also focused on use of the multi-criteria method to evaluate the alternatives for the warehouse location because it will be necessary to go even further in this area and find a combination of existing models or find new one which will be based not on costs but on delivery time. That will help companies solve the allocation problem to meet the requirements for shorter delivery times.
