In this paper, we develop a freight transportation model for railway network considering hazmat transportation issue. In the transportation system considered, different customers can request for carrying hazmat and non- hazmat boxes. It is assumed that the sequence of the trains in the network is known. The objective is assigning the non-hazmat boxes and hazmat boxes to wagons of the trains so that the transportation becomes safer. A zero-one integer programming model is presented that minimizes the cost of safe transportation. The model is solved using a new fuzzy approach.
