Abstract: Transporting goods from sources to destinations by road is very popular in Ghana and it can be seen in every business entity whose daily activities involve production. The production sites, storage facilities and final destinations are all link by road. It has always being a problem in finding ways to cut down transportation cost and it goes on to affect the decision making process and if proper strategic plans are not put in place can slow down the development of that establishment. In this study data of Gratis Aqua Company was considered and modeled as a transportation problem with unique quality method, minimum demand-supply method and best candidate method. It was observed that these models are capable of reducing the company’s total transportation cost. This transportation model will be useful for making strategic decisions by managers of Gratis Aqua Company in making optimum allocation of the production from the three storage facilities (Juaso, Obogu and Konongo) to the various customers in the three districts of Asante Akim at a minimum transportation cost.
