Abstract (english): The location of logistics facilities close to consumers and well-planned transport infrastructure is important for the flow of goods and sustainability in the region.The main purpose of this research is to verify the logistics sprawl in São Paulo Metropolitan Area and to discuss its reasons. To verify the existence of the phenomenon, a sample of logistics companies’ addresses has been selected and the geographic centers of this sample were calculated, using the barycentre of a set of points and then calculating the average distance of these points to the center. The analysis reveals the intensity of the phenomenon between the year 2000 and the beginning of 2017 and explores the attraction factors for logistic companies, including geographic, economic and tax aspects. The results reveal a small sprawl in the studied period for companies with a capital stock equal to or greater than 250 thousand reais, of 1.8 km in the northwest direction of São Paulo Metro Area.
