To compete in today's rapidly developing economy companies must constantly improve existing business processes in order to optimize the cost structure, improve service levels and increase competitiveness. An essential part of this work is the organization of an effective supply chain and re-engineering of logistics processes. Methods for simulation of supply chains can solve this problem and provide a competitive advantage to companies operating on the market.

The purpose of the master's thesis is a study of the possibility of agency approach to the simulation of linear supply chain of several agents in a stochastic variable and demand in terms of revenue losses from shortages and logistical costs.

The thesis studied the distribution network of the goods, which consists of a warehouse and different types of clients in the Central and Volga Federal District. The problems of optimum design of the structure, placement of logistics infrastructure, optimization of transportation processes and select the number of vehicles. The simulation model of a linear chain of custody is implemented in the program of AnyLogic, a series of experimental studies evaluating the proposed design solutions for the location of infrastructure, other facilities and transportation management and the number of vehicles.
