Currently, the Indonesian government is building electric vehicles to replace fossil-fueled vehicles.  One of the drivers to downstream the electric vehicles is the availability of infrastructure, namely the charging station. A strategic activity that must be carried out in Supply Chain Network Design (SCND), includes decisions about the location, number, and capacity of production facilities. In this study, We used  Semarang City, Indonesia as a case study. We assumed the local government of Semarang City has to ensure the provision of charging stations in collaboration with some places like malls, markets gas station, and so on, to ensure optimal coverage of charging stations with feasible distances between points.  It is important to design an optimal supply chain network to achieve this goal. This research proposes a supply chain network model for charging station facilities in Semarang city to cover all consumers with the fewest number of charging stations and minimum cost. The Malls and markets located throughout Semarang city are potential locations that will be chosen as charging stations. The model used is built from a combination of models in previous relevant studies. The distance-based method is selected to achieve optimal solutions and models are executed with CPLEX applications. The results of this study are expected to provide benefits and input recommendations to the Semarang city government to support the use of Electric vehicles.
