Logistics expertise from the start

Our logistics experts will develop cost and service-optimised logistics solutions with you – on an intermodal basis.

The logistics projects and consultancy department at DB Cargo will assist you as a competent partner. We rely on the strengths of each individual mode of transport in order to then combine them intelligently. This expertise therefore forms the focus of our consultancy services when the optimisation of supply chains is involved.

We develop tailored logistical solutions for every customer step by step: A preliminary study often gives a good overview which forms a basis for important optimisation approaches and focuses.

However, consultancy not only involves the development of concepts for our experts. We also implement the jointly developed solutions and take care of project management. You benefit from comprehensive practical and project experience of our experts and their broad range of industry knowledge.

We have an excellent network of connections with the different players and institutions in the rail industry. For our customers this means: less complexity and more freedom to concentrate on the core business.
