The purpose of this article is to present an optimal solution for solving an unbalanced fuzzy transportation problem(UFTP) in which the cost coefficients, demand and supply quantities are triangular fuzzy numbers. An efficient computational procedure is given for solving such model. An optimal fuzzy transportation cost is also kept to the minimum. The degeneracy problem is also avoided by this method. To illustrate the proposed method, a numerical example is solved and the obtained result is compared with the results of other existing approaches. The proposed method provides an appropriate solution to the decision makers for taking best decision when they are handling various types of logistic problems having imprecise parameters.
