In this paper, we present a Linear Programming Problem (LPP) to minimize the cost of transportation of NBC, PLC products from three distribution centres to ten depots. Three methods of analysis were considered namely: Integer Programming, simplex method and transportation method via computer packages. The result of the analysis revealed that, the cost of transportation from these distribution centres to all the 10 depots are the same. That is, the optimal cost is N9, 127, 776.
