The Sociedad Transportadora de Uraba, Sotrauraba, has been operating continuously since its foundation in 1957 when it was originally baptized under the name of Transportes Sopetran, since at that time Sopetrán was the main destination to and from where the routes went. He started with ladder cars with the need to replace the transfer of agricultural products between Sopetrán and Medellin, which for decades was carried out on a mule. With the passing of the years, it changed its name to Sotraurabá in 1964, a name that emerged and that still remains, because it was an important axis of local progress in the Urabá region, acquiring a social commitment to provide excellent service to the community.
Definitely, Sotrauraba was vital for the development of the region, transporting both the workers and the materials necessary for the construction of the bridge over the Cauca River, which facilitated the trip to Santa Fe de Antioquia. Subsequently, Sotrauraba, continued adding destinations to its portfolio, highlighting the Turbo route, thus being not only the first company to reach this place but the first Antioquia company that reached the sea. In the 80s, Sotraurabá moved its place of operations to the then newly opened Terminal del Norte de Medellin.
