DB Cargo in Europe

Rail service operating in Europe

Best choice on Europe’s rails

DB Cargo 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.

 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.

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.

Europe’s markets are becoming borderless

This is thanks in part to the use of multi-system locomotives in which DB Cargo invests. They allow more and more cross-border routes in Europe to be travelled without changing locomotive.

DB Cargo UK rail services connect directly to Europe’s rail network through the Channel Tunnel.
