Question

The Safora Company is a national chain of beauty products and cosmetic stores. It supplies all of its stores from a distribution center in Belcamp, Maryland; however, it has decided to construct a new distribution center for its stores west of the Mississippi River, and it will either continue to use its Belcamp facility to supply its stores in the east or open a new facility in the east. The following table shows Safora’s monthly truck shipments to 12 major eastern and Midwest cities where the majority of Safora’s stores are clustered.
City Monthly Truckloads
Boston........... 24
New York......... 32
Philadelphia........ 17
Washington, DC ...... 20
Miami........... 25
New Orleans........ 12
Atlanta........... 14
Charlotte.......... 10
Nashville........... 8
Pittsburgh.......... 11
Chicago........... 20
Detroit........... 15

Determine the best site if Safora decides to build a new eastern distribution center using the center-of-gravity technique.
