Extracts from this document...


REPORT ON BEST LOCATION FOR PODMORE' S FACTORY. Looking at the four choices in which to build the Podmore's factory I will explain, analyze and look at which location is best to suit its essentials, wants, needs and which location will benefit the company the most. The four locations from which one will be chosen include Edinburgh, Liverpool, Hull and Newman. Firstly deciding which location is most suitable for the factory's needs many different factors must be considered. The factors which may need to be considered will differ from the type, purpose and nature of the business.

It has good transport needs which include the M1, M6, a nearby Liverpool port and also a good supply of labour. Adding onto Liverpool's advantages it has a good population of young aged people who could have interest in a job. ...read more.
