Abstract: Approximately 90% of the cargo in the world is carried via maritime transport, making ports akey focus for international trade and transforming port installations into constant objects ofacademic study. One of the key aspects of port management is the issue of access. With anincrease in cargo volumes, many port cities have experienced constant bottlenecks due to the lackof adequate space for port operations. Considering that the terrestrial access problem faced byPort of Santos has not yet been analyzed, this research aims to evaluate the logistical and en-vironmental effectiveness of the organizational method adopted in Santos to address this pro-blem, having as reference the solutions adopted by ports in developed countries. The organiza-tion method of terrestrial access adopted in Santos proved to be an effective alternative from alogistics operation perspective with the implementation of the regulating yard. On the otherhand, the condition of a port of an emerging country strongly influence the approaches taken toaddress environmental issues, where cultural and economic issues hamper the adoption ofmeasures to reduce harmful emissions in Santos.
