The transportation problem is a special class of the linear programming problem. It deals with the situation in which a commodity is transported from Sources to Destinations. The transshipment problem is an extension of the transportation problem where intermediate nodes which are also referred to as transshipment nodes are added to account for locations such as warehouses. My main objective is to model Coca Cola transportation as a transshipment problem and also minimize the cost in transporting them. We will formulate the Transshipment problem as a Transportation problem and use the Transportation algorithm to solve it. The QM for windows Software will be used to analyze the data. It was concluded that if Coca Cola Bottling Company adapts this method, transportation cost will be minimized.
