**Abstract**—A new method for maximizing profit in unbalanced transportation problems in fuzzy set theory is proposed. With the help of numerical example, the proposed method is illustrated; we use Fuzzy transportation to find the least transportation cost of some commodities through a capacitated network when the supply and demand of nodes and the capacity and cost of edges are represented as fuzzy numbers.
