In today’s world, using fashion goods is a vital of human. In this research, we focused on developing a scheduling method for distributing and selling fashion goods in a multi-market/multi-retailer supply chain while the product demands in markets are stochastic. For this purpose, a new multi-objective mathematical programming model is developed where maximizing the profit of selling fashion goods and minimizing delivering time and customer’s dissatisfaction are considered as objective functions. In continue due to the complexity of the problem, a number of metaheuristics are compared and a hybrid of Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II (NSGAII) and simulated annealing is selected for solving the case studies. Then, in order to find the best values for input parameters of the algorithm, a Taguchi method is applied. In continue, a number of case studies are selected from literature review and solved by the algorithm. The outcomes are analyzed and it is found that using multi-objective models can find more realistic solutions. Then, the model is applied for a case study with real data from industry and outcomes showed that the proposed algorithm can be successfully applied in practice.
