The transport sector, which includes everything from bike taxis to air transport plays a vital role in any society. Because of the fact that the transportation cost makes up approximately 70% of the production cost for a newspaper (Arnsted, 2014), a distribution optimization creates an option to reduce the transportation cost at A/S Bladkompaniet and furthermore reduce the impact on the environment. Hence, the project will end up with designing a solution model to reduce the cost of distribution.
