Evaluation of Transport Modes for Petroleum Derived Products by the Complete Cost Method

Distribution becomes the main link in a supply chain when efficiency is concerned. Being a huge size country, transport related problems in Brazil should be treated by the application of new information technology and more efficient logistic tools. This paper aims to evaluate ducts and railway modes by the complete costs valuing the analysis elements to find the best alternative for the transportation of petroleum derived products. The method deals with technical, economic, environmental, social and political factors with the same importance, which satisfies the concepts of sustainable development. Different elements are used in the case study to characterize the most important aspects for the numerical valuing and alternative analysis. Despite the construction costs, the complete cost analysis shows that ducts are more favorable with the highest values for the factors considered in the analysis.
