Logistics freight center locations decision by using Fuzzy-PROMETHEE

    Birol Elevli Affiliation


Fuzzy Preference Ranking Organization METHod for Enrichment Evaluation (F-PROMETHEE) was applied for choosing among potential logistics center locations. The method combines the concept of fuzzy sets to represent uncertain information with the PROMETHEE, a subgroup of Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) methods. Criteria are identified based on review of scientific and trade literature and inputs received from experts. The suitability of areas have been evaluated on the basis of these criteria. There are substantial uncertainties and subjectivity about site information. Therefore F-PROMETHEE method is preferred. The case study shows that this application provides reasonable results.
