The paper a method for optimizing the distribution of the order volume among competing agents, which takes into account the relative importance of criteria factors over which the optimization is performed, is suggested. The proposed method allows to distribute the amount among several agents optimally, to minimize costs and avoid possible delays in delivery. This method can be used in solving practical problems of selecting competing agents, in which participants offer equivalent alternatives (products or services).
