This thesis shows how Turkish Land Forces can optimally meet delivery and pick-up demands of its units via Central Ring Transportation System. A mixed integer programming model is proposed, and for the implementation of the model, mathematical modeling software GAMS is used. The model is implemented for three different fleet sizes of vehicles (4-vehicle, 5-vehicle, 6- vehicle) with taking eight-week data of 2002 into account. How transportation costs are affected by the number of vehicles is investigated, and an ideal number of vehicles and the optimal routes to be followed are proposed.
