Abstract
In this article, we investigate the optimization of sustainable supply chain network (SCN) strategic design problem. The proposed SCN is composed of four echelons including plants, distribution centers, cross-docks and retailers. The problem has been mathematically formulated as a multi-objective optimization model that aims to minimize the total costs and environmental effect. To tackle the addressed problem, multi-objective desirability-based simulated annealing algorithm (MODBSA) is proposed. Then, MODBSA is compared with two common meta-heuristic algorithms. Subsequently, the known method called response surface methodology with the multi-objective decision making(MODM) approach is employed to tune the parameters. Finally, MODBSA and other approaches are compared together in terms of some performance measures.
