This article demonstrates how to use the method of simulation modeling in AnyLogic in order to optimize the logistics network of industrial company operating in the industrial gas market. The model detailed basic processes associated with the transport of the product, the service requests of customers and distribution of the product to consumers. Factors were taken into account, bearing the stochastic nature, such as unevenness of production, weather conditions that affect the level of demand, the number of failures of vehicles, vehicle repair time. On the developed model, a number of scenario studies, which identified the optimal values of the control parameters of a logistics network: the number of rolling stock, additional storage capacity, minimizing the loss of the deficit and the lack of free rolling, leading ultimately to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) .
