Best choice on Europe's rails

We are the only company to offer you Europe-wide rail transport from one source - fast, efficient, reliable and independent of the industry - with one of the largest rail networks in the world.

Our market position: We are Europe's leading freight railway

At the same time, DB Cargo AG is the most international freight railway. Almost 60 per cent of traffic services are pan-European. And new connections are always being added. The network now extends from Lisbon via Nizhny-Novgorod in Russia to distant Shenyang in China.

Thus, we offer:

  • the greatest traffic performance across Europe
  • the most customer sidings across Europe            
  • the most freight traffic points across Europe     
  • the largest fleet on the continent

"Freight transport will grow. We now have the opportunity to bring this growth onto the rails. Fewer traffic jams, environmentally friendly transports: DB Cargo can do it"

Dr. Sigrid Evelyn Nikutta, CEO, DB Cargo AG

Our recipe for success: Cooperation for higher quality

In 2010 DB Cargo AG agreed closer cooperation in cross-border single wagon traffic with a further six European freight railways. This production alliance called “Xrail” establishes a new quality standard for transport reliability and extends to economic areas in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg.
