The transportation problem involves optimizing the distribution of a single commodity from multiple suppliers to multiple consumers while minimizing transportation costs. The objective function aims to minimize the total cost, which is the sum of the product of transportation quantities and their corresponding costs, subject to constraints that ensure the supply from each source matches the demand at each destination and that all quantities are non-negative.
