Priority Modes of Transport for Soybeans from the Center-West Region in Brazil

Abstract : Choosing modes of transport for agricultural production involves uncertainties and decisions that affect logistics costs in the transportation of grains. This article intends to explain the use of the Paraconsistent Decision Method based on the Evidential Annotated Paraconsistent Logic Eτ in the decision-making process involving experts in priority modes of transport in Agribusiness logistics. It deals specifically with the distribution and export of soybeans, the main Brazilian commodity, to the major Brazilian ports, considering the aspects and features of each mode of transport. Exploratory research was used and data were collected from questionnaires about the modes of transport. Results indicate that experts have chosen modes of transport with numeric outputs, where free costs and payable costs were considered, thereby pointing out the features that should be taken into account in each mode.
