In order to solve the problem of cross-layout of cold chain logistics network and optimize the resource allocation of small and medium-sized cold chain logistics enterprises, based on the concept of low-carbon economic development and with the aim of minimizing the total cost, this paper constructs a cold chain distribution center location model including refrigeration cost and carbon emission cost from the microscopic perspective of enterprises, and selects two small and medium-sized cold chain logistics enterprises for simulation, and the simulation results show that the model can achieve the effect of saving operation cost, goods flow cost, carbon emission cost and refrigeration cost.
