A multi-objective model of global distribution for the Taiwan notebook computer industry is proposed. The proposed two-stage approach involves a mixed integer linear programming model and the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (AHP) approach. The analytic method provides quantitative assessment of the relationships between manufacturers and customer service. To show the effectiveness of the proposed approach, a Taiwan notebook computer model is solved. The results of this multi-objective model show some dynamic characteristics among various performance criteria of the outbound logistics.
