The aim of this paper is to analyze the long turn economic impacts of tariff review policy of the Brazilian rail freight sector, as well as explore some analytic potential of the dynamic Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model which captures some forms of market imperfections (such as increasing returns to scale, imperfect markets). The main findings of this application indicated that tariff policies promote positive long turn effects on GDP growth, exports, and investments. In addition, the sectorial projections of such policies suggest a negative effect on the rail sector and positive effects on sectors’ production, which are most dependent on rail modal.
