Special Issue on

Operations Research and Transportation Problems


The transportation problem is a distribution-type problem, the main goal of which is to decide how to transfer goods from various sending locations (also known as origins) to various receiving locations (also known as destinations) with minimal costs or maximum profit. As long as the number of origins and destinations is low, this is a relatively easy decision. But as the numbers grow, this becomes a complicated linear programming problem. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of operations research and transportation problems.


In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore operations research and transportation problems. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Modelling the transportation problem 
  • Solution of the transportation problem 
  • The transportation problem: features, types, & solutions
  • Linear programming
  • Transportation management and optimization
  • Transportation theory


Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Operations Research and Transportation Problems” should be selected during your Submission.
