Multi-modalism in Port Activity Beyond Road Transportation:
The studies of viability maintain that road transportation is most efficient for distances of less than 300 km. Meanwhile rail transportation is most efficient for distances between 300 and 500 km and water transportation is best for distances over 500 km. However, most of the cargo in Latin America is transported by road/highway, which is less advantageous means of transportation and the deterioration of roads and highways as trucks usually transport more cargo than what they can really carry (adapted from a study about agricultural indicators by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics).
