DB Cargo is greener than ever

Digitale Kupplung

Digital and automatic

Modern coupling technology in the rail freight sector is both digital and automatic. Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), a pilot project to demonstrate, test and approve the use of digital automatic coupling (DAC) in freight trains started in June, and trials are now in full swing.
