Future sales markets
Rail is an integral component of the Federal Government’s climate policy. The Federal Government is investing in and promoting rail transport massively in the coming years. In rail passenger transport, our focus is on expanding capacity, increasing the share of rail in intermodal competition (traffic shift) and defending our strong market position. In public road transport, we expect a change towards demand-oriented transport in the medium term. At the same time, autonomous driving will lead to ever fewer people having to own their own car. This will increase the flexibility and attractiveness of public transport.
In the area of rail freight transport, our focus continues to be on the European market. We are well positioned in all of the central European corridors and offer service connections to locations as far afield as China.
DB Schenker is already very well represented in all key markets and regions. We do not expect this to change significantly in 2020.
