The several standard and the existing proposed methods for optimality of transportation problems in linear programming problem are available. In this paper, we considered all standard and existing proposed methods and then we proposed a new method for optimal solution of transportation problems. The most attractive feature of this method is that it requires very simple arithmetical and logical calculation, that’s why it is very easy even for layman to understand and use. Some limitations and recommendations of future works are also mentioned of the proposed method. Several numerical examples have been illustrated, those gives the clear idea about the method. A programming code for this method has been written in Appendix of the paper.
