Quiet freight cars
The number of new and existing freight cars with the noise-reducing composite technology continued to increase in the year under review. At the end of the year under review, about 93% of DB Cargo’s active freight car fleet in Germany was already rolling on quiet brake shoes. By the end of 2020, all DB Cargo active freight cars in Germany will be equipped with WHISPER BRAKES NO. 5 The progress is in line with our forecast from the 2018 Integrated Report.
