The study utilized a model of linear transportation to locate the base expense of moving educational materials from the educational institute (distribution centres) to the branches (request or demand area). The information was analysed using QM software 2013. Consequently, the examination shows that the Northwest corner technique was ₦292,750 000, the minimum cost technique was ₦273,500 000 and Vogel’s estimation technique was ₦230,000 000. Based on the outcome Vogel’s estimation technique was a proficient technique due to lower cost. The modified distribution method (MODI) was utilized to optimize the techniques to arrive at a final feasible output of ₦230,000,000. The transportation model will enable the organization to distribute educational materials optimally at a transportation cost of ₦230,000 000 via an optimal route.
