The purpose of this study was to find the ground transportation route (truck) with 20 feet container of accessories, parts and spare parts of motorcycles from Bangkok, Thailand to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam with the lowest time, cost and risk. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was used for selecting from 5 routes by pairwise comparison. The result from AHP indicated that the route starting from Bangkok on road no.36 eastern of Thailand through Klaeng, Rayong and Trad province, cross border at Ban Hat Lek in Thai –Jam Yeam in Cambodia. Next, go through Panompenh and SvayRieng crossing Vietnam Mocbai border to Ho Chi Minh City was selected as the optimal route. This route has cost of 22,268.76 THB and takes 14.43 hours. Risk of transportation route is 0.17 risk scale. This study will help entrepreneur, business owner and interested people for their information to make decision for their business.
