ABSTRACT
This study uses linear programming to build transportation and transshipment models in order to test whether the existing actual costs to transport the major Jordanian exports and imports are optimal. The main findings of thisresearch showed evidence about the ineffectiveness of the current policies of transportation and transshipmentwhich stipulates a change towards optimal values to target minimal overall costs of transportation andtransshipment. It is recommended that Jordan develops its own shipping fleet to cut drastically the cost ofimportation through means of economics of scale and bulk shipping.
