The use of multimodality in transport is a strategy that brings great energy, economic and environmental benefits, positioning itself as an essential tool in the search for diversification of Ecuador`s productive matrix, for this reason this paper shows an analysis of the performed actions that can be applied in this process in order to ensure its efficiency in the energy sector. It is therefore necessary to have well identified the current stage of the process that needs to be optimized as well as each of its components, so that they can make improvements of all the elements, and the whole constitutes a multimodal logistics chain. Furthermore this paper compares specific consumption of various transport modes. Under these conditions, during the progress of the optimization exercise multimode connectors, measures, technical, technological and management are proposed, oriented towards greater effectiveness of each of the modes of transport, logistics infrastructure and global transport process , all applied to improving the energy efficiency of existing multimode connectors in Ecuador, as well as the multimodal transport logistics chain hydrocarbon.
