Abstract: This study analyses the decision of port and mode choice of soy consolidators and producers from southern Buenos Aires province, Argentina. Nested logit models were estimated combining stated and revealed preference data. Estimations for Willingness to pay for one-day reduction in inventory, travel time, elasticities, iso-utility curves and hinterland were made. FAS (Free Alongside Ship) price, typically not considered, proved to be a relevant parameter in the mode-port choice. Other variables included were Service headway, freight price and travel time. Simulation results showed that reducing the train’s service headway and freight price are effective measures to encourage train demand.
