In this chapter we will analyze the well known and often employed method for finding the fuzzy optimal solution of fully fuzzy solid transportation problems proposed by Liu and Kao (Eur J Oper Res 153:661–674 2004, [5]). This method can exhibit some shortcomings and that is why we two new, improved methods are proposed in this chapter for solving fully fuzzy solid transportation problems.
