The modern business era focuses toward consumers’ requirements and delivery in a short span. The scenario would become complex when orders are delivered with a halt (intermediate node) from multisources to multidemand points. The current study develops a two-stage integrated procurement-transportation model with an objective to minimize the total incurred cost during procurement, holding, and transportation, where inventory carrying cost at intermediate node is higher than cost at sources and destinations. Further, the discount policies are incorporated to procure and transport from one stage to another. A real life case study is exampled to validate the model.
