    What is link2rail?

    link2rail is the digital platform of DB Cargo. It includes e-services and online tools. The e-services are of assistance for the individual processes, booking, monitoring and invoicing. The online tools are useful applications around freight transport, such as the network map, the search for rail access points, the timetable or freight wagon catalogue.

    How can I become a link2rail user?

    As the e-services from link2rail are tailored to the individual needs of customers, the account manager will first consult with you to work out the best offer for your needs. Which services do you wish to use? Will you access them via the portal, an API (interface) or the app? When it comes to configuring, we'll provide you with step-by-step assistance, including on site.
