In the current scenario of the competitive market, the adversity on the organization finds the better method to create and deliver values and services to the customers as per customer’s requirement with in optimal cost and time. The transportation model provides a robust framework to meet these challenges. For solving real life problems, there are several methods to solve transportation problem in fuzzy circumstances. In this paper, a method is suggested to solve fuzzy transportation problem in which trapezoidal fuzzy numbers represent transportation cost, availability, and demand for the product. To illustrate the proposed method, a numerical example is solved and obtained results are associated with the results of existing methods. It is observed that proposed method gives the optimal result in comparison to previously existing method and it is very easy to explain and implement in real life transportation problem for the decision maker.
