Abstract: Delivery of any product ordered online requires logistics services to reach the end consumer. To ensure the smooth flow of these products, the logistics companies build warehouses near the vicinity of cities. The location of these warehouses is to be chosen strategically to minimize transportation costs and increase serviceability. With the rise in online sales and services via platforms of ONDC, Flipkart, Meesho, Amazon, and others, it is relevant to start preparing cities to accommodate such development. The study evaluates the emerging city of Jabalpur to determine the potential locations of warehouses. The data was collected considering the population w.r.t pin-codes. K-mean clustering was used to determine the nearest warehouse locations. The optimum number of warehouse requirements came to be three, depending on its capacity requirements. The actual site could vary from the theoretical location as per the ground condition.
