Relief logistics plays a critical role in the success of disaster relief operations. One way to improve the smoothness of such activities is the strategic placement of storage facilities to ensure that relief aid reaches disaster victims in a short space of time. This paper presents a decision-making model to determine the location of relief warehouses using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). We first identify a set of criteria to be considered in the model by reviewing the literature and conducting in-depth interviews (IDIs) with representatives from the Regional Agency for Disaster Management (BPBD) and The Indonesia Red Cross (PMI) in Jakarta. We then develop the AHP model with first-level criteria, namely costs, geographic location, infrastructure, proximity, and the macro-environment, and consider three alternative locations (Cipinang Besar Utara, Cipinang Besar Selatan, and Pondok Kelapa) for a relief warehouse to serve victims of floods in East Jakarta. The pairwise comparisons are conducted by five experts, and the results show that geographic location has the highest weight, while cost has the lowest, with Cipinang Besar Utara chosen as the preferred location.
