This chapter emphasizes on the critical role of proper identification and consideration of uncertain parameters in the design phase of logistics networks. For this purpose, several methods have been introduced to control and reduce the adverse effects of these uncertainties through the implementation phase. One of these helpful approaches is an improved stochastic programming called robust optimization (RO) that has flexible qualifications to model the real-world ...
