Abstract (2. Language): 
Logistics service provider selection is a complex multi – criteria decision making process; in which, decision makers have to deals with the optimization of conflicting objectives such as quality, cost, and delivery time. Despite to the great variety of methods and models that have been designed to help decision maker for this process in literature, few efforts have been dedicated to develop systematic approaches for logistics service provider selection using these predesigned methods and models. In this study, logistics service provider selection decision support system based on the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) method is proposed
Abstract (Original Language): 
Lojistik hizmet sağlayıcının seçimi, karar vericinin kalite, maliyet ve dağıtım zamanı gibi birbiri ile çelişen birçok amacı eşzamanlı eniyilemesini gerektiren karmaşık çok ölçütlü bir karar verme sürecidir. Literatürde karar vericilere bu süreçte yardımcı olmak amacı ile tasarlanan çok çeşitli metot ve modeller olmasına rağmen, tasarlanan bu metot ve modelleri kullanarak lojistik servis sağlayıcı seçimine sistemsel bir yaklaşım getiren çalışma çok az bulunmaktadır. Bu çalışmada bulanık AHP’ye dayalı bir lojistik hizmet sağlayıcı seçimi karar destek sistemi önerilmiştir
