In this paper, we present an integrated production-distribution (P-D) model which considers rail transportation to move deteriorating items. The problem is formulated as a mixed integer programming (MIP) model, which could then be solved using GAMS optimization software. A hybrid genetic algorithm-simulated annealing (GA-SA) is developed to solve the real-size problems in a reasonable time period. The solutions obtained by GAMS are compared with those obtained from the hybrid GA-SA and the results show that the hybrid GA-SA is efficient in terms of computational time and the quality of the solution obtained.
