The model assumes fixed shortage, handling and outdating cost and selling price of goods decreases with time. An illustrative example is provided at the end to reveal the application of proposed methodology on a given system. Insight gained would be of much interest to the distributers of perishable goods in managing the inventory and transportation for same.
