By using the Riemann-Finsler geometry, we study the existence and location of the optimal points for a general cost function involving Finsler distances. Our minimization problem provides a model for the placement of a deposit within a domain with several markets such that the total transportation cost is minimal. Several concrete examples are studied either by precise mathematical tools or by evolutionary (computer assisted) techniques.
