One of the factors that has a significant impact on the socio-economic development of the Russian Federation’s regions is the logistics infrastructure. It provides integrated transportation and distribution service of material flows. One of the main elements of logistics infrastructure is a storage infrastructure, which includes distribution center, distribution-and-sortout and sortout warehouses. It is the most expedient to place distribution center in the vicinity of the regional center. One of the tasks of the distribution network creation within the regions of the Russian Federation is to determine the location, capacity and number of stores. When determining regional network location of general purpose warehouses methodological approaches to solving the problems of location of production and non-production can be used which depend on various economic factors. The mathematical models for solving relevant problems are the deployment models. However, the existing models focus on the dimensionless power storage. The purpose of the given work is to develop a model to determine the optimal location of general-purpose warehouses on the Russian Federation area. At the first stage of the work, the authors assess the main economic indicators influencing the choice of the location of general purpose warehouses. An algorithm for solving the first stage, based on ABC, discriminant and cluster analysis were proposed by the authors in earlier papers. At the second stage the specific locations of general purpose warehouses and their power is chosen to provide the cost minimization for the construction and subsequent maintenance of warehouses and transportation heterogeneous products. In order to solve this problem the authors developed a mathematical model that takes into account the possibility of delivery in heterogeneous goods from suppliers and manufacturers in the distribution and storage sorting with specified set of capacities. The model allows determining the capacity and location of the home network of warehouses in the Russian Federation regions based on the minimization of the total costs associated with the delivery of goods from suppliers / manufacturers to the warehouse and from the warehouse to customers, material handling products, and annual operating costs for the maintenance of the core network of warehouses.

Well-developed logistics infrastructure of a region makes a positive impact on types of economic activities that are included in the structure of production of a gross regional product. Basic constituents of the logistics infrastructure are transport and freight terminals, warehouses, transportation companies, manufacturing enterprises, wholesale and retail trade organizations, etc. The article concentrates on solving the actual problem related to the assessment of the degree of influence of basic socio-economic indicators on selection of towns of regional subordination and districts of the Volgograd region where a location of network of distributing and assorting warehouses is expedient. For assessment of influence of the considered parameters on selection of towns of regional subordination and districts of the Volgograd region, where the location of the warehouse network is expedient, a two-step cluster analysis was chosen which makes it possible not just to divide the selection into classes with similar values of indicators but also to assess the degree of influence of considered features on partitioning of objects into groups (clustering). On the basis of the two-step cluster analysis the indicators were determined which exert a significant influence on the location of the regional warehouse network. For the quantitative assessment of influence of basic socio-economic indicators on selection of towns of regional subordination and districts of the Volgograd region where the location of the warehouse network is expedient, the discriminant analysis was applied. The use of discriminant analysis made it possible to quantitatively assess the influence of socio-economic indicators on selection of locations of warehouses, and to determine, with a high degree of probability, where the formation of a regional warehouse network is possible. Thus, it can be concluded that the socio-economic indicators exerting the crucial influence on selection of towns of regional subordination and districts of the Volgograd region should include "Investments in Fixed Assets", "Cargo Turnover of Motor Transport" and "Carriage of Cargo by Motor Transport".
