A Spatial Analysis Approach to Size and Location of Australian Wool Selling Centres

This study is concerned with determining the number, size, and location of selling centres for Australian wool so that transport and selling charges are minimized. A plant location model incorporating transhipment assumptions was used. It was found that substantial cost savings could be made by rationalizing wool flows and establishing integrated selling centres. Of fourteen existing centres five were eliminated, and relative throughput at the remainder changed markedly.
