The fuzzy transportation problem can be transformed into crisp problem using Robust Ranking method. It is solved by using four methods; Fuzzy Vogel Approximation Method, Fuzzy New Method, Fuzzy Zero Suffix Method and Fuzzy Monalisha Approximation Method. The above methods are used to find the Initial Basic Feasible Solution in terms of fuzzy numbers. The solution procedure is illustrated with a numerical example.

Keywords :Trapezoidal fuzzy number; fuzzy transportation problem; Robust Ranking; Initial basic feasible solution.
