We address the problem of finding the range of the optimal cost of a transportation problem when supply and demand vary over an interval. We consider the specific version of a transportation problem with supply inequality constraints and demand equality constraints under the assumption that the transportation costs are immune against the transportation paradox. We investigate some theoretical properties of the problem which constitute the basis of a novel solution algorithm. Our results show that the proposed algorithm hugely outperforms the best existing solution approaches.

Abstract

We address the problem of finding the range of the optimal cost of a transportation problem when supply and demand vary over an interval. We consider the specific version of a transportation problem with supply inequality constraints and demand equality constraints under the assumption that the transportation costs are immune against the transportation paradox. We investigate some theoretical properties of the problem which constitute the basis of a novel solution algorithm. Our results show that the proposed algorithm hugely outperforms the best existing solution approaches.
