Today's tough competitive conditions require managing companies' supply chain management more effectively to protect the competitiveness in the field of leather apparel as in every sector. The selection of the most suitable suppliers for the company's expectations and criteria is an important decision problem in the management of this chain. In the scope of this study, a Turkish leather apparel company was selected and a field survey was carried out on leather supply by the participation of the purchasing managers of this company. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation (FCE) methods were utilized for the analysis of the obtained data. Logical and consistent results were obtained and the most suitable supplier to the company criterion is determined by combining the advantages of both methods. Furthermore, some conclusions and recommendations for the company and the industry were manifested.
