Strong Rail


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 of transport performance in rail passenger transport,
  • increase in rail’s market share to 25% of freight transport.

In addition, the German Federal government’s climate policy objectives are being supported by the switch of traction current to 100% renewable energies, the electrification of rail lines and the purchase of alternatively driven or hybrid-driven locomotives.

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.
