Localização e concentração de atividades logísticas no Brasil

This paper is about the location and concentration of logistics activities in Brazil, especially in Pernambuco, Goiás and Santa Catarina states. In order to identify these concentrations, data concerning the number of employees who work in economic activities sectors related to transport and logistics were used. The findings indicate concentrations of logistics activities around the large consumer markets, industrial complexes, agricultural production and port terminal areas. Based on the literature, factors contributing to the location decision as well as concentration phenomenon of these facilities are also presented. Lastly, logistic activities concentrations are classified under the taxonomy proposed by Savy (2005).
