Abstract: This paper considers the optimisation of a multi-objective supply chain of mass consumer products considering the maximisation of profit and minimising the environmental criteria for designing a closed green cycle distribution network. The objective is to determine the closure and consolidation of facilities and determine product flow for the system. The mathematical model's efficiency has been proved with real information obtained from a Colombian multinational company. The obtained results confirm the model's effectiveness and the positive aspects determining the environmental impact on gas emissions related to the type of used transportation modes and the expected profit of the company's case study.
