Any questions?

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. Already using DB Cargo digital services? – Contact your account manager to switch them to link2rail.

How much does it cost to use link2rail?

That depends on which services you use. The online tools and basic use of e-services via the portal are free of charge. Extended use of the e-services via an app or API is subject to a use/service charge. Your personal account manager will be pleased to work out an offer tailored to your needs. If you don't have an account manager, please contact the new-customer service.

The online tools are free to access. To use the e-services, please contact your personal account manager or, if you don't have one, the new-customer service.
