With the development of fresh food consumption upgrade and the growing consumer demand for high quality fresh food products, traditional fresh food logistics and distribution centers are facing the dual challenges of delivery speed and guaranteeing product freshness. To this end, this paper focuses on the site selection of fresh food logistics center of company Y. First, the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method is used to screen out suitable alternative logistics nodes and reduce the fixed cost of site selection. Secondly, a mixed integer planning model including freshness index is constructed to reduce the cost of goods loss in the overall distribution process. Finally, the model is solved using Lingo11 to select and confirm the optimal site for the fresh food logistics center.
