We develope and analyze a heuristic procedure to solve a fuzzy version of the p-median problem in which we allow part of the demand not to be covered in order to reduce the transport cost. This can be used to improve a given solution of the crisp p-median problem as well as to give to the decision-maker a range of alternative locations that can be adequate according to his or her own criteria.
