This thesis makes a cost benefit analysis of relocating the outdated and earthquake damaged supply distribution center of the Turkish Navy. Given the dynamic environment surrounding the military operations, logistic sustainability requirements, rapid information technology developments, and budget-constrained Turkish DoD acquisition environment, the site selection of a supply distribution center is critical to the future operations and logistics supporting the Turkish Navy. Additionally, this thesis analyzes site selection alternatives through the use of three modeling techniques; the Center of Gravity Method, the Electre Method, and the Logical Decisions for Windows methodology. The results of the analysis indicate that the most advantageous location for the naval supply center is in the port city of Pendik.
