Euro Cargo Rail (ECR) becomes DB Cargo France

The change of name is a symbol for the unified European strategy

With the renaming, DB Cargo completes the integration of Euro Cargo Rail (ECR) and underpins its position as Europe's largest rail freight operator. DB Cargo's network now comprises 17 national companies. Each national company is run independently by a management team based in the respective country. The organisational assignment of the national companies to DB Cargo's Board of Management departments optimally integrates regional and functional management for the benefit of the European network. The new national company DB Cargo France also adopts the DB Group logo, thereby visually confirming its affiliation to Europe's largest freight railway.

New services as proof of integration into the DB Cargo Group

Euro Cargo Rail thus becomes part of DB Cargo's nationwide freight transport services in Europe and ensures that national and international block trains can be produced with exemplary reliability and smooth border crossings with high punctuality. Its intermodal end-to-end services also include local activities (storage, loading/unloading, first/last mile). Its wagonload service is offered with reduced transport times and regular shuttles between major European hubs. Finally, the digitalisation of all processes enables real-time monitoring of solutions and favours reliable, fast and personalised communication with all customers.

The result: DB Cargo France complements and diversifies DB Cargo's unified European strategy with its experience and solutions.
