DB Cargo Romania

Green landscape

In Romania and throughout Europe

With Deutsche Bahn Cargo Romania – the local subsidiary of the largest railway freight operator in Europe - DB Cargo - the signals are always green for your rail transports in the country and throughout Europe.


Southeast Europe is one of the growing European markets. Based on its development, many international companies, such as those in the automotive industry, have established production units in this area. DB Cargo - Europe's number one freight railway and the largest operator in terms of volumes transported in Europe - responded by setting up its own rail transport operator in Romania, as part of the European DB Cargo network.

At European level, Deutsche Bahn Cargo Romania uses all the resources of the European DB Cargo network, with the help of which it meets all customer needs.

 At home in Bucharest

This is where all transport and local-delivery services are planned and managed, in a dedicated control center, by qualified personnel.

Deutsche Bahn Cargo Romania holds the safety certificates required to operate on the entire Romanian railway network.

 From patchwork to network

Following the signing of a transport service contract in Europe between DB Cargo AG, Mainz (later Railion Deutschland and then DB Schenker AG) and Continental AG, Hanover on 20th May 2000, DB Cargo AG decided to set up Logistic Center Romania S.R.L. (later known as Logistic Services Danubius S.R.L.) in Timisoara, providing for Continental Automotive Products S.R.L. Timisoara - tire manufacturer - shipping and transport activities by rail.

This package of services included from November 2001 to February 2002 logistics services (warehousing, handling and transhipment) for an external tire depot.

Starting with January 2003, our company also took over the shunting activity for Linde Gaz Romania, Timișoara, providing the transport of the gas and the containers, and from February 2003 to February 2009, the company carried out shunting activities in Bulgaria through its own branch.

In September 2003 and July 2004, two important new contracts had been signed for shunting services, thus establishing the working points in Deva and Aleșd.

In August 2006, the company received the license of railway carrier in Romania, and since December 2006 it has been operating trains in domestic traffic.

The company continued to develop, so that in 2009 the office in Bucharest has been established, and in 2010, the first international transports fully operated by Logistic Services Danubius were crossing Romania.

In May 2011, the name of the company had been changed from Logistic Services Danubius to DB Schenker Rail Romania S.R.L.

Wanting to offer its customers the best quality services, DB Schenker Rail Romania established in the summer of 2012, its own depot in Turceni.

In 2016, DB Schenker Rail Romania became DB Cargo Romania, and in November 2018, the company's headquarters had been moved from Timisoara to Bucharest, the office in Timisoara remaining a working point.

Continuing the upward trend, DB Cargo Romania is today a railway operator that provides premium quality services, reliable for customers, economically viable, safe for employees and environmentally friendly, through a fleet of locomotives and wagons impressive in number and performance, as well as motivated and qualified staff, deployed on the entire Romanian railway network.
