Abstract : The proglem of allocating commodity flows to transport equipment units in a mixed fleet is treated by a set of linear programming transportation models. The models allow for the allocation of commodity flows in a system which may be regarded as one whole entity such as a firm, or as a set of reaches differentiated by equipment characteristics, or as an environment of competing firms, or any combination of these. The models were shown to generate feasible, optimal and integer solutions in their application to a hypothetical two commodity example. (Author)
