Challenges and Innovation Opportunities in Load Multimodal Transport - LMT in Brazil: Cluster Technique Application as a Support Tool for Decision Making

Although technological advances have contributed to integration of modes, the Load Multimodal Transport - LMT is a topic poorly developed in literature. In Brazil, despite the Multimodal legislation existing since 1998, through the law No. 9611, the multimodality is not yet a reality. In spite of there are obstacles to the practice in Brazil, the identification and characterization of Loads Multimodal Transport Operators - MTO is essential, since they are from different sectors, reflecting thus heterogeneity. This heterogeneity observed and diagnosed to serve as element of decision-making for formulating politic policies. In this regard, this paper is to emphasize the perception of MTO, about the possible obstacles to the exercise of their activity in Brazil, using as methodological option the use of cluster technique. The results signalled to new public policies in order to minimize the deficiencies in terms of modal integration, both physical and operational point of view, but also legal aspects to develop ways to effectiveness gain in multimodal system configuration in Brazil.
