This paper defines a problem type, called the transportation-location problem, that can be considered a generalization of the Hitchcock transportation problem in which, in addition to seeking the amounts to be shipped from origins to destinations, it is also necessary to find, at the same time, the optimal locations of these sources with respect to a fixed and known set of destinations. This new problem is characterized mathematically, and exact and approximate methods are presented for its… CONTINUE READING
