This paper deals with a capacitated, multi-objective and solid transportation problem with imprecise nature of resources, demands, capacity of conveyance and cost. Here transportation cost is inversely varying with the quantity-to be transported from source to destinations in addition with a fixed per unit cost and a small vehicle cost. The transportation problem has been formulated as a constrained fuzzy non-linear programming problem. Next it is transformed into an equivalent crisp multi-objective problem using fuzzy interval approximation and then solved by Interactive Fuzzy Programming Technique (IFPT) and Generalized Reduced Gradient (GRG) method. An illustrative numerical example is demonstrated to find the optimal solution of the proposed model.
