Because of its location in the ring of fire, Indonesia has around 30% of all volcanoes in the world. After the volcano erupted, the area around the volcano was damaged and many people lost their houses, jobs, and possibilities to live in there. Before the volcano erupts, people who live around the volcano must be evacuated as soon as possible to one of the available shelters. In the shelters, drinking water, food, and medicine are needed by victims who were evacuated to survive aftermath of a disaster. To distribute reliefs to all shelters effectively, we developed a multi-objective relief distribution model. This distribution system model aims to determine the allocation of various types of relief items to several shelters with a minimum total cost and balanced service level between locations. This multi- objective relief distribution model considered multi-item, multi-period, multi-vehicle, and multi-trip by using a pre-emptive goal programming approach. This optimization model was applied to the numerical example based on Semeru Mount as the highest active volcanoes in Indonesia, which is located in Lumajang, East Java.
