Abstract: Transportation related expenses forms a main chunk of product cost in a multi-stage manufacturing supply chain.The pressure on firms to reduce carbon emissions to go green had emerged in recent years due to government regulation, need for best possible allocation of available resources, competition from green players and rising awareness on environment protection in the minds of people. Given the increasing focus on emissions by several countries, we also incorporate an emission or pollution factor in our objective. Nowadays many manufacturers have started using more than one channel to connect with their customers to improve their reach; this led to the formation of multi-channel supply chains. Also, we attempt to deal with transportation related costs considering environmental issues while designing of a multi-channel supply chain ofdelivery system for a Diary firm. Teacher-Learner-Based Optimization (TLBO) which does not involve any algorithm specific parameters is applied to solve the problem. The conclusion shows that levy flight distribution in teachers’ phase of TLBO performs better than traditional TLBO.
