This is the further study on the basis of previous study, the "transport problem paradox", aiming to find the discipline when the change is more than the adjustable amount in the optimization process, namely the so-called stage of "post transportation problem paradox". At first, the view of the minus cost route and the theoretical viewpoint of anti-adjustable route were used. As well as, the theory of adjustment route was taken as a guide. Then it was come up with that the assumption judgment and proven the development trend of the total freight and cargo in the stage of post transportation paradox. At the terminal part, through theoretical analysis, the conclusion is that the total freight continues to increase with the increase of the total cargo and finally the two will have a linear proportional relationship in the stage of post transportation paradox.
