We propose a new freight transportation problem to distribute the benefit of ore transportation throughout a linear route to compensate the communities located on it. Such distribution aims to avoid conflicts generated by the transportation that causes external costs such as air, water, and land pollution to communities that can block the route, forcing more expensive alternatives. We propose a solution based on stability and fairness principles. In particular, we present some reasonable properties to characterize a family of assignment rules for determining compensation to local communities.
