Abstract Turbo Bicycle Company is a rather young company, selling all-terrain-bikes and trekking bikes all over Europe. The company does not yet have a functioning supply chain, but rather a diffuse distribution politic, with some storage space here and there, in order to be able to handle the capacities. Yet, there is no system or deeper thought behind, let alone any cost analysis. This project at hand aims at proposing a design for a potential Supply Chain / distribution network, for the company to serve its target markets as good, fast and cost efficient as possible. In order to come up with a reasonable design, the center of gravity model will be used as well as economic order quantity. The target market is all of the European Union, where there are no trade restrictions or limitations. Two distribution strategies will be examined in terms of inventory and order handling costs; transportation costs from the factory to the distribution centers; as well as transportation costs from the distribution centers to the distributors/retailers. At this point, it can be seen how much influence total transportation costs can have on the sum of all costs.
