Transportation problem is a typical combinatorial problem. We aim at the search capacity of the solution by using a genetic algorithm with a the Bicriteria fixed Charge Transportation problem, which is an extension of the traditional transportation problem. In this paper, we improve the technique of Teramatu. In particular we propose new crossover operation for the genetic algorithm. Comparison with other methods is performed and the validity of the proposed method is shown.
