**Abstract** In this paper Dependent Chance Goal Programming Model (DCGPM) is mainly focused on the classical Multi-Objective Solid Transportation Problem (MOSTP), where the multiple interval objective functions are minimized and the order relations that represent the decision makers’ preference between interval profits have been defined by the right limit, left limit, centre and half width of an interval. Finally, the equivalent transformed problem has been modeled in this paper, so that it could be solved by using a evolutionary technique.
