Goods distribution has a firm connection with transportation cost. Transportation method used by a
company will cause great impact on companys profit. If companys profit can be maximal, the company will be
able to develop its business even greater. Some problem solution steps proposed were: determining optimum
criteria, developing alternative solution, developing optimum model, and practicing chosen implicative
planning solution. These steps were implemented to obtain optimum goods distribution cost to gain maximum
profit. This research resulted in that the distribution cost for goods implemented by current method in the
company has been already optimum. Then for the following development, Decision Tree Method was used,
where the results are: shipping to Yogyakarta using Sinar Aji transportation service with minimum EMV
Rp.2.993.342; shipping to Salatiga using own car with EMV Rp.2.659.388; shipping to Purwokerto using Sinar
Aji transportation service with EMV Rp.2.563.859; shipping to Cirebon using Sinar Aji transportaion service
with EMV Rp.2.443.792; shipping to Semarang using Sinar Aji transportation service with EMV Rp.4.203.489.
As the conclusion, goods shipping method which has been implemented by the company until now is optimum so
it still can be used for any following business development as well as provides an iluustrative plan for the
