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".
