ESTRATÉGIAS PARA RESOLUÇÃO DOS PRINCIPAIS DESAFIOS DA LOGÍSTICA DE PRODUTOS AGRÍCOLAS EXPORTADOS PELO BRASIL

Brazil is one of the world’s biggest producers and exporters of agricultural products. This paper sought to identify and suggest solutions for the main challenges that impact on Brazilian chains of agricultural products for exportation purposes. Some challenges were identified in the literature, considering the need for: analysis of agricultural chains; coordination between the links of each chain; improvement in the methodologies used for optimization of agricultural chains; existence of satisfactory traceability systems covering the whole chain; considerations in relation to the infrastructure of the current Brazilian agribusiness. Some actions were proposed to help in the elimination of these bottlenecks, such as: separation of products by categories according to transport equipment used; fostering coordination between the links of the chains; use of specific software; development of traceability systems; use of public-private partnerships to improve the quality of the current road network and the consequent reduction of transportation costs of agricultural products.
