Abstract

This study presents an analysis of a soybean transportation system in Brazil using discrete event simulation model to measure the fleet necessary to transport the demand from farms to the export terminal. The system is composed of different transport modals, where grains are transported by truck from the farms to the storages. After that, barges on waterways transport the product to the final terminal, where ships are loaded for export at the end of this process. The current study brings a series of comparisons between scenarios for evaluation of existent bottlenecks in the intermodal transport system, making it possible to evaluate interferences of water level and seasonally of soybean production in the system.
