ABSTRACT
The fuel transportation is a recurring theme in scientific researches. With support quantitative tooling put on the market by the simulation techniques by discrete event system, obtainable in the ARENA software, the present research developed a model to the determination of capacity to transportation ethanol waterway in a scenarios different. It was observed that the capacity is limited by 14 million of cubics meters a year. Comparing the costs of transport of waterway modal with transport through ducts, was possible show that ethanol transport by waterway Tietê-Paraná presents viability of costs and capacity of transport to 5 millions of cubics meters a year. However, it is inviability to transport 10 millions of cubics meters in function a lack of capacity to accommodate convoy.
