ABSTRACT
Transport systems can contribute to the development of the country, for driving the growth of GDP. In Brazil, the water transport is little used for the movement of products in the market, standing out only for disposal of goods to foreign markets. The mode of water transport is suitable for handling the bulk, it has the ability to move large quantities. Brazil has a lot of ports and terminals, plus only a few are used during the year, the port of Epitácio has been widely used as a transportation route for agricultural products, however, showed a decline in its use in recent years, even if showing a great option. The study was proposed to analyze the benefits of the waterway mode, and the use of Epitácio port terminal, identifying the bottlenecks that cause the low current flow of cargo. Field analysis concluded that the handling is small compared with its ability to drive. One of the reasons for low participation in national transport is the preference of the road system, and because of the railroad being paralyzed, most likely later this year will be reactivated.
