    Consider the following explanation

    Explanation:

    False statement are as follows,

    A) It is designed to minimize the maximum possible travel distance to any location

    This statemet is false

    Explanation - Center of gravity has nothing to do with travel distance or any kind of diisplacement. Following sentence is used in cargo industry ffor effieicent transportation.

    C) And D) Are also false

    Explanation - They are also a part of cargo management hence cannot be used in center of gravity method.
