<jats:p>With the development of electric vehicles, research on the cooperation of transportation networks (TNs) and power distribution networks (PDNs) has become important. Because of practicability, most cooperation research focuses on user equilibrium assignment based on the Wardrop I principle. There is less research focusing on network cooperation involving the system optimal assignment based on Wardrop II. This research paper constructs a cooperation between dynamic system optimal (DSO) and dynamic optimal power flow (DOPF) assignments with multi-objective optimization. Based on Wardrop II, this DSO model realizes multiple origin–destination pairs, multiple tasks, and multiple vehicle types. Electric vehicle and fast charging station models are designed as the connection between both networks. The optimal result gives three scenarios: TN prior, PDN prior, and a compromise of both. DSO minimized the total travel cost and DOPF minimized the total cost of power generation. Several path choices resulted from the scenarios. Whichever scenario is chosen, an electric vehicle is assigned dispersedly for a certain time period to reduce power loss. The optimal solution is also affected by the charging power in fast charging stations. This research can be applied to logistics transportation under traffic restrictions. It offers a dynamic optimization model for transportation and power operators.</jats:p>
