Abstract: In this paper a new method is proposed for finding an optimal solution for a wide range of transportation. This method is easy to understand and use compared to other methods. The main feature of this method is that it requires very simple arithmetical and logical calculations and avoids large number of iterations. This method is very efficient for those decision makers who are dealing with logistics and supply chain related issues. This method can easily adopt among the existing method.
Keywords: Transportation problem, Exponential approach, cost matrix, optimal solution.
