This work modeled, analyzed and solved the transportation problem of five prominent and reputable transportation companies that travels or has routes across the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria, AkwaIbom Transport Company Limited (AKTC), Young Shall Grow Transport Limited (YSG), ABC Transport PLC (ABC), Peace Mass Transit (PMT) and Chisco Transportation Limited (C. T). The data on the amount each of the companies charge per person to a particular destination and the number of persons transported per day were collected from the above mentioned companies, and analyzed using TORA 2013. The result output as shown in table 6.2 indicated that the totaminimum cost is t be reduced to 1, 031, 535, 260 per day if the transport output table is strictly adhered to. The result showed that it is less expensive to travel to Enugu using AKTC, irrespective of rival competing companies such as YSG, ABC, and PMT. It was also observed that, although AKTC is the best company to use in going to Enugu out of the five companies under review, YSG, ABC and PMT were equally good and competing. Peace Mass Transit and Chisco Transport Limited were the best to use when travelling to PH. AKTC has no rival competitor when travelling to Lagos, Abuja, Kaduna, and Ibadan, and thus, it is the best company to consider for any tripin Nigeria by road.
