To be successful in today's active business competition, enterprises need to design and build a productive and flexible logistics network. The flexible Multistage Logistic Network (fMLN) problem is NP-hard. The previous papers were considering the problem as a single source logistic network problem while in real world the people face a multi source logistic network problem. This paper, tried to find the minimum cost of fMLN using Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) with considering a multi source flexible multistage logistics network.
