Selection of the best supply chain contract plays a significant role as a strategic feature and factor of better coordination of all stages in a supply chain. As a variety of uncontrollable and unpredictable factors affect the evaluation and decision-making process at different levels, identification of the most appropriate contract is usually very complex and unstructured. In this paper, Delphi-based analytic hierarchy process (AHP) approach has been proposed to tackle the problem. The sole purpose of the paper is to analyse the existing contracts of the organisation and recommend the best one. Necessary data of powdered milk item were collected from a renowned super shop in Bangladesh, namely, Swapno superstore, Dhaka. In order to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed approach, an illustrative example is presented; the result is analysed at the end of this paper. This work can be a guide for Bangladeshi planners as well as other researchers to identify the most suitable agreement for their supply chain.
