Abstract The study in this paper is to discuss the limitation of Vogels Approximation Method VAM and developed an improved algorithm after resolving this limitation for solving transportation problem. Vogels Approximation Method VAM is the more efficient algorithm to solve the transportation problem but it has some limitations when highest penalty cost appear in two or more row or column. For that case VAM does not give any logical solution. In this paper we stand a logical approach for this problem and developed an algorithm named by Logical Development of Vogels Approximation Method LD-VAM where feasible solution from this method are very close to optimal solution more than VAM.
