The group’s history began when Vittorio Medioli, an Italian born in Parma, moved to Brazil at age 25 to found SADA (Spedizione Autotransporti Depositi Associati) Transportes e Armazenagens. The company was founded in Contagem, in the Belo Horizonte metropolitan region, in 1976, with the purpose of providing logistic support for the first Fiat factory in Brazil, inaugurated in Betim (Minas Gerais) in that same year. In 1983, the company’s headquarters was transfered to Betim and it currently occupies an area of 743,829 m².

It is one of the largest road transport companies in Latin America and it offers services of vehicle and cargo transportation, storage ,yard management and port operations.
The group’s trajectory is a clear example of well established relationships between cultural and economic elites, between industry, media and politics. Medioli is married to writer and enterpreneur Laura Machado. The Machado family is a traditional Minas Gerais family, and produced important Brazilian writers such as Aníbal Machado, Maria Clara Machado and Lúcio Machado de Almeida. The publisher was Lúcia’s initiative, who now runs Grupo Editorial Sempre Editora and writes a column for O Tempo, as does Vittorio Medioli.
Besides, still in 1989, Medioli started a life in politics. He became a member of PSDB (Brazilian Social Democracy Party), became a federal deputy for Minas Gerais for four consecutive mandates (1990-2006). In Congress, he was head of several comissions that discussed themes in areas related to his companies activities. In 2009 he and his wife became members of recently founded PHS (Humanist Solidarity Party). In 2016, Medioli was elected Mayor in Betim.
