Odebrecht TransPort´s quality of work has been recognized by several awards.

In addition, SuperVia was chosen as the Best Passenger Transport Operator in 2013 by Ferroviária magazine.
The Group has been granted concessions for more than 30 years, some of which were the first in Brazil, such as in electrical power, sanitation and highways. During this period, Odebrecht's Engineering and Construction teams were active in the field.
After six year without a concession award in Brazil – and following the sale of its share in Companhia de Concessões Rodoviárias - CCR in 2003, Odebrecht returned to the industry in 2009, when it won a 30-year management contract for the Dom Pedro I Corridor (photo) in the interior of the state of São Paulo, through the Rota das Bandeiras Concession. This is one of the most important highway systems in the country, interconnecting the Metropolitan Region of Campinas.
In 2010, Odebrecht TransPort was formed with four assets. The new enterprise intensified investments in transportation and logistics and gained a new shareholder in the Fundo de Investimento do Fundo de Garantia do Tempo de Serviço – FI-FGTS (Investment fund of the Seniority Guarantee Fund), which acquired 30% of the company’s capital. Over the following three years, Odebrecht TransPort raised approximately R$ 8 billion in resources for its projects.
