Title in Portuguese
Eficiência portuária no Brasil
Keywords in Portuguese
Comércio internacional
Econometria
Portos
Abstract in Portuguese
A queda das barreiras comerciais artificiais entre os países trouxe destaque às barreiras representadas pelos custos de transporte do comércio internacional. Entre estes, o custo associados à atividade portuária tem sido alvo de atenção especial. Também no Brasil, a percepção de que a eficiência portuária é um fator crítico para a economia ganha força. No entanto, não existem estimativas da contribuição dos portos para a variação dos custos de transporte e da diferença de custos entre os portos. O presente trabalho visa preencher estas lacunas. Através de dados das importações brasileiras do ano de 2002, desenvolvemos um modelo econométrico [baseado em Blonigen & Wilson (2006)] que permite medir a variação do custo de importar uma mercadoria devido aos portos. O modelo permite-nos ainda ter uma idéia da eficiência relativa entre os portos da amostra, ou seja, em condições semelhantes qual porto oferece o menor custo.

Abstract in English
The fall of artificial trade barriers between the countries highlighted the barriers represented by the transport costs of international trade. Among these, the cost associated with the port activity has received special attention. Also in Brazil, the perception that port efficiency is an important factor to the economy has gained strength. However, there are no estimates of the contribution of ports to the variation of the transport costs and of the difference of cost between the Brazilian ports. The present work aims to fill these gaps. Using data of the Brazilian imports for 2002, we develop an econometric model [based on Blonigen & Wilson (2006)] that allows us to measure the variation of the cost to import a good due to port. The model allows us to have an idea of the relative efficiency of the ports.
