Reverse logistics provider selection is a typical multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) problem. In this paper, a new method for reverse logistics provider selection based on Interval-valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets and TOPSIS is presented. First, the concept of Interval-valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets is introduced. Second, the distance between two interval-valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy numbers is defined, and the method for Supplier selection based on Interval-valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets and TOPSIS is investigated. Finally, the availability of the proposed method is verified by analyzing the numerical example.
