The data tend to be centered around a certain value that can be called a central value. In this case, the measures of central tendency are the function used to recognize this central value to represent the data. In some cases, the data are closing to the central value and sometimes more widespread. In order to measure the proximity or distance of data from that central value, measures of  dispersion are used. In this research, some of these measures are used to find the basic acceptable solution for transportation problems. Better results are obtained by the researcher through using these measures by taking five applications with different capacities.
