The logistic performance of Brazilian grains transportation

Resumo


Despite significant advances in the Brazilian agriculture, the logistics costs, especially with transport and storage, are still the main barriers that limit the potential of the Brazilian agribusiness. This study analyzes the logistics efficiency of the main flow routes for Brazil’s corn exports from the major producing states to the main ports of Brazil. For this purpose, we develop a performance measurement system based on the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) using a model with four dimensions for efficiency analysis: financial, customer, internal business processes, and learning/growth. We calculate the efficiency of the main routes using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Our results suggest that the routes from Mato Grosso state to Santarem port using a road-waterway intermodal transport system were the most efficient on three of the four criteria. Thereafter, we analyze the relative efficiency of all main Brazilian routes based on the four criteria, establishing the efficiency ranking, and further, developing a standard model to evaluate other logistic systems for different agricultural commodities
