A classic example problem for linear programming is the commodity shipment problem, with multiple plants and markets and shipment costs between them. This problem is used as an example in many tutorials with many different algebraic modeling languages (AML), e.g. https://www.gams.com/products/simple-example/ https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/GLPK/GMPL_(MathProg)#Official_GLPK_examples

I am interested in finding an example of an extension of this formulation to include seasonality in production and consumption, with warehousing in between seasons. A two or four-season example in any AML would be helpful. I would have expected this to be a fairly standard type of problem in logistics. To date I have not been able to find anything online.
