Abstract: In this paper we proposed a new method (Matrix Maxima Method) using Geometric mean approach to solve multiobjective transportation problem with a Pareto Optimality Criteria. Fuzzy membership function is used to convert objectives into membership values and then we take Geomertic mean of membership values. We used a different criteria to find Pareto Optimal Solution. This is an easy and fast method to find the Pareto Optimal solution. The method is illustrated by numerical examples. The result is compared with some other available methods in the literature.
