Strong Rail targets
Concrete measures are at the basis of every building block of the Strong Rail. A “construction manager” was named for the operational management of each building block, who is accountable to the Management Board for designing the measures and their operational implementation. The building blocks were incorporated in DB Group’s mid-term plan. We monitor contributions to targets with key performance indicators. This measurement is ongoing, and is managed and monitored within the Strong Rail Board, a specially created body, supervised by the Management Board and the Chairs of the business units of the Integrated Rail System.
The basis are the transport policy sector targets of the Federal Government:
- doubling passenger numbers in rail passenger transport,
- increasing freight transport market share held by rail from 18% to 25%, and
- generating traction current from 100% renewable energies by 2038.
We aim to achieve the objectives of the Strong Rail strategy through a total of ten DB-specific target figures. Our primary objective is our contribution to the shift in the mode of transport. To this end, we are focusing equally on growth in rail passenger and rail freight transport.
