What is the lowest cost to ship the freight and which approach would you select?

A manufacturer has two shipments to make from Minneapolis to Chicago. Both shipments weigh 8500 pounds. The two shipments can be shipped separately to Chicago at a cost of $2.00 per mile for a total of 409 miles and will take one day for each shipment. The company has a warehouse in Milwaukee where they can consolidate the freight. It would take two LTL shipments at $2.00 per mile to get the freight to Milwaukee for 337 miles and then one full TL shipment from Milwaukee to Chicago at $1.50 per mile for 92 miles. The consolidation cost in Milwaukee is $200 and it takes two days for the trip through Milwaukee. What is the lowest cost to ship the freight and which approach would you select?
