Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a framework and a suitable method for selecting the best logistics supplier. In general, many quantitative and qualitative criteria should be considered simultaneously for making the decision of logistics supplier selection. The information about judging the performance of logistics suppliers will come from customers’ opinions, experts’ opinions and the operational data in the real environment. Under this situation, the selection problem of logistic suppliers will be the uncertainties and fuzziness problems in the decision making process. Therefore, we combined the linguistic PROMETHEE method with maximum deviation method to determine the ranking order of logistics suppliers. And then, an example is implemented to demonstrate the practicability of the proposed method. Finally, some conclusions are discussed at the end of this paper.
