      FAQs

      Here you'll find answers to the most important questions about the freight timetable.

      What does a BETA version mean?
      The development of the freight timetable and the interface to the data of connections is in the BETA phase, which is why there may still be deviations or unexpected error messages in the connections at the moment.
      Why is this information commitment-free?
      DB Cargo's freight timetable is provided for information purposes only and is meant to serve as a guide for planning. The listed times may change depending on the type of freight being transported, service to customer siding, available capacity and other external factors. The timetable is updated regularly as these conditions change. Therefore, detailed information for connections which fall outside the window of the current timetable is sometimes unavailable.

      Why is it possible to search for connections by days of the week instead of dates?
      The freight timetable lists connections which run at weekly intervals. Connections are therefore valid not only for a specific date but also for the corresponding weekly interval.
      What does end of assembly mean?
      End of assembly is the latest point in time by which your shipment must be delivered to the place of dispatch. After the end of assembly, no more freight can be added to the relevant block of wagons. Please note that the end of assembly is not the same as the final departure time of the freight train.
      What does end of split-up mean?
      The end of split-up is the point in time at which the shipment can be picked up at the destination. Please note that the end of split-up is not the same as the actual arrival time.
      How can I make a transport enquiry?
      You can make a commitment-free transport enquiry for any connection. The connection data you select will be automatically included in your enquiry. Once you have submitted a complete enquiry, a DB Cargo expert will promptly reach out to you to offer services to address your specific needs.

      If you have been unable to find a suitable connection, you can still contact an expert at any time. The expert will help you with your enquiry or assist you in finding a suitable connection.
      How is the environmental footprint (CO2 emissions) calculated?
      By choosing rail, you can reduce your CO2e emissions by 80% compared to other methods of freight transport.

      The provided emissions values for individual connections are calculated based on the relevant transport route, an average transport load of 100 tonnes and greenhouse gas emissions values for various modes of transport (in CO2e). The source for our emissions values is the German Environment Agency.

      To calculate the emissions of your own freight transport, please use EcoTransIT World, an online tool.

      Note: CO2e (CO2 equivalent) is a unit of measurement which allows the effect of different greenhouse gases to be compared. To calculate emissions values, the German Environment Agency has converted the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) into their CO2 equivalents.
      What is a line category?
      The line category indicates the load capacity of the relevant rail infrastructure. Each category is assigned a line identifier (e.g. D4) and is used to determine load limits for freight wagons. If a given connection has line sections with different line categories, the lowest identifier is taken as the value.
      Which public holiday arrangements apply?
      Please note that the connections indicated here may vary on public holidays, as public holiday arrangements are agreed following consultation with our customers.
      Can I use the advantages of rail if I don't have my own rail siding?
      Yes, we are happy to organize the pre- and on-carriage by truck for you, so that you have one contact person for all services
