This paper describes a bargain model to distribute tasks with stochastic payoff among transportation companies. The tasks are generated from a procurement problem where a set of products needs to be selected for transportation from a set of prospective suppliers to a set of prospective manufacturers. The bargain process based on this model uses a time varying payoff distribution. The design of the payoff model is explained and the simulation study used to determine the design criteria of the payoff model to generate a desirable task distribution is described.
