The fixed charge (fixed cost) may present the cost of renting a vehicle, landing fees in an airport, setup cost for machines in a manufacturing environment, etc. In this paper, we discuss fixed charge capacitated in a non-linear transportation problem. Thereby, we establish local optimum condition of this problem. Next we establish an algorithm for solving this transportation problem. Also, we illustrate a numerical example to support this algorithm
