Objective – This paper presents an analysis of service factors that impact customer satisfaction with dealers in the sugarcane segment in Sao Paulo state – Brazil.


Design/methodology/approach – The research method is descriptive quantitative, based on survey. Data is secondary gathered from the tractor-making company’s database, with n = 88. Tools used for multivariate statistical analysis were factor analysis and correspondence analysis.


Findings – The results revealed a reduction in latent variables into two components: trust and relationship. The correspondence analysis presents association among variables “cost-benefit of spare parts” and “treated fairly and honestly”.


Practical implications – Despite the evidence of a relationship between the results and the information available in the literature, results cannot be generalized, since theory doesn´t fully describes the investigated sector. Future research may advance towards validating if the emerged variables are relevant on the strategic decision making process for this segment.
