Determined search problem in the presence of the unbalanced distribution of potatoes between the governorates of Egypt and wholesale markets and are in the process of transfer of the crop from areas of production to consumption areas. The unbalance as result farmers to sell the crop in close areas avoid to increasing the cost of transports. This research aimed to minimize transport distance to potatoes crop, between surplus and deficit governorates. It is worth mentioning that minimize transport distance necessarily mean to minimize transport costs.
