DB Cargo AG

 Getting your freight onto rail is easy

  • From any port with hinterland transport to your destination
  • Via railport, for which we offer additional services such as storage, order picking, customs clearance and pre- and post-carriage by lorry
  • Via combined transport terminals for containers, including direct delivery by lorry on request
  • From your company's own railway siding - the construction of which can be subsidised with up to 50% of the investment sum
  • Via free-loading sidings with loading roads and ramps for loading and unloading lorries

Private sidings: Many advantages and grants

Connecting your company directly to the rail network can be worthwhile: lower costs, extended loading and unloading windows, better planning. In addition, there is an up to 50% subsidy for investments in new construction, expansion or reactivation. The experts from our regional sales department will assist you in applying for the subsidy and during all phases of the project.
