Delivering construction and waste materials across the UK, quickly, safely

DB Cargo UK is the leading provider of rail freight services to the UK construction industry, offering fast, reliable, safe rail services for aggregates and building materials.

Construction and waste rail transportation

If you need to transport construction materials to any part of the UK, we offer the regular services, rail wagons and expertise you need to get your goods there on time.

We are the largest supplier of rail services to the construction industry, operating 400 trains per week to support building projects across the country. Our special construction and aggregates rail wagons transport everything from cement to aggregates and building blocks to all corners of the UK.

Supporting the UK’s biggest infrastructure projects

Our services are trusted by some of the biggest names in UK aggregates, including Tarmac, Cemex, Aggregate Industries and Hanson. 

Operating the UK’s largest fleet of rail wagons and locomotives, we have the resources and sector knowledge to support major infrastructure developments anywhere in the UK. Projects we have supported in recent years include the Heathrow expansion programmes, the Olympic Park and Crossrail construction projects.

We also provide train services to a growing waste market, transporting commercial waste for infrastructure projects and domestic waste destined for landfill or incineration.

Investing to meet individual requirements

We’re constantly investing in our fleet to ensure we offer a reliable, responsive service to all our construction and waste industry customers. Our wagons can also be modified, as required, to optimise loads or meet the demands of individual products or projects.

Your one-stop rail freight service provider

Far from simply being a ‘hook and haul’ provider, we offer a complete one-stop-shop solution for all rail services, including all transportation, terminal management and materials handling for every type of product. That gives you a single supplier to work with and a fully integrated service for every rail freight requirement.

Safety excellence and quality assurance

Safety is our number-one priority in the delivery of all rail services for the construction and waste sectors. Safe working practices are embedded in our operational procedures and culture.

All our locomotives and wagons are maintained in-house, giving us complete control over quality. We also have the technical engineering expertise to ensure that our trains offer the highest standards in the industry.
