Best choice on Europe’s rails
We are the only company to offer our business customers in all sectors rail transport across Europe from a single-source provider – quickly, efficiently and reliably. And thus give them access to one of the world’s largest rail networks.
Nowhere in the world is there such a dense rail network as in Central Europe. DB Cargo AG operates from the centre of this network – the largest and highest performing freight railway in Europe.
Our market position: Europe's leading freight railway
DB Cargo AG offers:
● 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
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.
Our core services: Innovative transport and logistics solutions
- Block train traffic and single wagon traffic
- Combining rail with lorry and sea freight modes of transport
- Individual industry solutions, such as for the chemicals, mineral oil, disposal, paper, coal and steel or automotive sectors
- Special environmentally-friendly services such as DBeco plus
Our quality mark: IT-based reliability
The greatest challenge in long-distance, cross-border traffic is the reliable and timely execution of transport. DB Cargo AG has integrated production in order to guarantee this. Based on tailored IT, we offer:
- Cross-border solutions and production concepts
- Central, Europe-wide transport management with start and destination responsibility
- Europe-wide management of the use of vehicles and the technical oversight of vehicles
- Door-to-door live tracking of all transport by 2020
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.
Our promise: Customer service from a single source
DB Cargo AG designs solutions across Europe which are precisely tailored to the most diverse industries and goods.
All business segments at DB Cargo AG share a common objective of being able to offer uniform customer service for all Europe-wide traffic – across all borders.
The basis for this is a closely integrated planning process between sales, production and customer. To this end, DB Cargo AG is established in three European regions with a network of partner companies and one hundred per cent subsidiaries.
