Automotive RailNet: Logistics chains from a single provider

We transport your components and vehicles quickly and safely to their destination with individual solutions. The largest European special equipment fleet is available to you for this purpose.

DB Cargo Logistics GmbH and the Spanish majority shareholding Transfesa S.A. are Europe’s leading providers of transport and logistics services for the automotive industry on the rails. Together with our customers, we develop tailor-made and intermodal transport solutions along the entire supply chain. Our unique Automotive RailNet branch network forms the basis for this.

With more than 250 trains daily, production sites and sales markets from Sweden to Turkey, Portugal to Russia and further on to China thus enjoy rail connections. Synergies can be optimally utilised due to comprehensive management and combination of material and fully assembled vehicle transport and thus high-frequency and high-performance logistics concepts achieved.

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Development of concepts individually tailored to customers
  • Integrated branch solutions
  • Flexible and high-frequency supply concepts
  • Global, intermodal incident management
  • Integration of different supply chain partners
  • Managed by a single provider


We offer combined transport solutions between production sites, European ports and distribution sites for merchant supplies in the field of fully assembled vehicle logistics. With our network of our own and partner terminals, we enable transport flows to be efficiently combined and we take care of the storage of vehicles and integrated value-added services in the process, where necessary. Our modern wagon equipment also guarantees safe transport. We can thus manage your individual transport processes efficiently and reliably as a single provider.

We manage the entire logistics for the transport of your components from individual connections to complex networks with intermodal and conventional solutions. Our longstanding know-how in the development and management of intermodal transport solutions, the integration of different supply chain partners and the use of innovative transhipment technologies enable customers to also utilise the advantages of the rails without their own sidings. We offer supply concepts in sequence tailored to your requirements to ensure smooth production processes in the facilities. With our facility switching service, our logistics solutions extend into the facilities and thus guarantee comprehensive process coordination.
