Transportation plays a vital role in palm oil industry supply process because it provides the opportunity to continuously create supply operational efficiency and improve supply chain performance. The objective of this paper is to optimize route transportation process to represent a capacitated shortest route problem in palm oil FFB. A metaheuristic method based on genetic algorithm is designed as a model solution for the mathematical model. A case study in PTPN III Indonesia is presented to test the model effectivity and efficiency. The results indicate that the proposed metaheuristic method can find a better route rather than random method used by the company.
