A Multi-Objective Decision Approach for Carrier Selection in Transportation Supply Chain

Considering multi-objective and vagueness of the goals, a multi-objective mixed integer programming model is applied to determine the number of carriers for transportation and the volume to allocate under the multiple-cargo, multiple-carrier environment. An asymmetric fuzzy-decision making technique is applied to enable the decision-maker to assign different weights to various criteria. In the end, the model is explained by an illustrative example.
