Abstract: 

The global population is booming, and Iran is no exception. This additional capacity is placing considerable strain on many aspects of human life; in particular on transport. Fossil fuels will continue to play an important part of the transport fuel mix, and therefore the limited and dwindling reserves need to be optimized for economic, social and environmental reasons. The goal of this research is to determine the gasoline transport capacity from ports of the country and local refineries to different destinations throughout Iran. It is the aim of the study to determine an optimization alternative for the gasoline transport capacity from and to each specified destination by applying the trans-shipment model. The goal is to minimize transport expenses due to sending gasoline from two sources to seventy seven destinations, by using forty seven intermediate points and 6, 076 decision variables (transport direction). By achieving this goal, industry is confronted with demand and supply restrictions, simplicity of use and non-negative portable gasoline capacity. Referring to the results obtained, the expense of 73% of gasoline transport by pipe-line was 70%, and for road transport of 23%, it came to 25% of the total gasoline transport expenses Share of transfer by ship for 3.4% yields an expense equal to 5%, and in addition the results show a 17% cost saving of the gasoline distribution expense in 1387.
