In this paper, we consider the pentagonal fuzzy number to solve the fuzzy transshipment problem. A new method namely, Ghadle and Pathade one’s best candidate method (BCM), is proposed. BCM is for finding optimal solution to a transshipment problem. Proposed method in this paper gives the remarkable solutions on balanced and unbalanced fuzzy transshipment problem. The method has been illustrated with the help of an example.
