Deutsche Bahn International Operations

Deutsche Bahn International Operations GmbH acquires, initiates and is responsible for rail operations and maintenance projects outside Europe. The focus is on asset-­light projects with opportunities for attractive returns, which contribute to the Strong Rail strategy by strengthening profits, know-­how and employer attractiveness. In return, customers of Deutsche Bahn International Opera­­tions benefit from the wide-­ranging expertise of DB Group. New project opportunities are constantly being tested and pursued in North America, Latin America, the Near and Middle East, and Asia.

  • The Etihad Rail DB, in which Deutsche Bahn International Operations holds a 49% share, was commissioned in the first half of 2019 to bring its experience and expertise gained from the operation of a 260-km-long freight line in the United Arab Emirates, into the planning process for a new, about 600-km-­long line in the UAE.
  • In the USA, the operation of a first section of the California High-­Speed Rail is currently being prepared in Cen­­tral Valley. The operation of the first high-­speed line in California, which is to connect San Francisco and Los Angeles, will be commissioned in a few years with the support of Deutsche Bahn International Operations and transitioned into regular operation. At present, DB Engineering&Consulting USA Inc., together with Deutsche Bahn International Operations, is advising the US Federal agency in California on the preparation of the rail operations.
