Abstract Changes in demographic and social structures, the rapid growth of e-commerce markets, and the spread of the 3PL Market brought shifts in the logistics market. Consumers are no longer looking for cheap bundled products, but short-distance, small-quantity, and frequent purchase patterns that have resulted in the emergence of urban compact distribution centers. Contrary to large logistics centers located outside of the city that serve as the base of a country’s logistics network, smaller urban logistics centers serve as the base in an urban area. In this study, B-Mart was chosen because it is an urban compact logistics center based on an online platform that holds the largest number of users and has the fastest delivery time among the new types of urban compact logistics centers. This research examined the correlation between recently changed domestic consumption patterns and distribution centers and analyzed their location and spatial characteristics through case analysis of urban compact logistics centers that are leading the change in the logistics market.
