DB Cargo
DB Cargo
is a European (mainly German) railway cargo carrier. The company was formed from the freight operating section of the Deutsche Bahn with the addition of various European rail freight operating companies. In December 2007 Railion became part of the DB Schenker logistics group, itself a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn. In early 2009 the now larger division was renamed DB Schenker Rail, and once again in 1 March 2016 to its current name, DB Cargo.

The present company is the result of the merger of DB Cargo
DB Cargo
AG with NS Cargo NV. Later, the Danish cargo company DSB Gods (literally DSB Cargo) merged into the company. It further acquired the Italian cargo carrier Strade Ferrate del Mediterraneo (SFM) in 2004 and further acquired the Swiss cargo carrier Brunner Rail Services GmbH. In addition it purchased a 20 percent stake in Swiss BLS Cargo AG in 2007. In 2008 it increased its stake in BLS Cargo AG to 40 percent. In 2008 the Railion brand was replaced with the rebranding of the whole DB logistics organisation into a common recognisable brand; named DB Schenker.[1] In 2011, DB Schenker Rail signed an agreement with Lietuvos Geležinkeliai to increase cross-border services with the Baltic states.[2] Operations[edit] The holding company is based in Mainz. 92% of the shares are held by DB AG (through its Logistics
subsidiary DB Schenker), 6% by NV Nederlandse Spoorwegen
