A transportation problem with twin objectives of minimizing the cost as well as the distance traveled – has been studied. The twin objectives are merged as one with the proper measure to minimize on the whole. This problem has been reduced to an Integer programming problem and the same is solved to get the optimum solution. An example is presented with the real-life data to demonstrate the application of the method.
