In order to boost, in a differentiated way, the growth of the Transport and Logistics segment in Brazil, in March 2010, the Odebrecht Organization launched Odebrecht TransPort.
In October 2010, the Investment Fund of the Guarantee Fund for Length of Service (FI-FGTS) became a shareholder in Odebrecht Transport Participações SA (OTPP), with a 30% indirect stake in the company’s share capital.
