DB Cargo is greener than ever

Top marks for environmental protection

The coronavirus pandemic may have nudged environmental protection and the surrounding debate into the background for now, but DB Cargo has defied these times of crisis to transport goods reliably while using its Eco Solutions to outgreen other modes of transport.
