Build on direct access

A dedicated siding brings many benefits, but setting it up is a complicated and involved process. DB Cargo is your strong partner, giving you highly skilled and experienced support in all phases of such a project.

A dedicated siding gives you direct access to the international rail network and thus all Europe's key business centers. DB Cargo stands by you through the entire process, giving you advice and support.

Subsidy program for sidings

To boost the shift of transport from road to rail, the German government passed a statutory regulation promoting the development of private sidings: the regulation relating to the construction of new private sidings and the development and reactivation of existing installations. All necessary information, contact persons and relevant links relating to the initiative, known in German as "Offensive Gleisanschluss," can be accessed by following the link provided here to the cross-company website for siding information.
