The bridge between Europe and Asia

In order to meet demanding market expectations, we offer you competitive logistic solutions in the area of international cargo transport.

Among these solutions, we offer transit, import and export to and from Commonwealth of Independent States countries, Baltic States, and Central and Western Europe. Thanks to its geographical location, Poland is the most important transport corridor with great development potential.

Poland's eastern border does not only mean the eastern frontier of the European Union, the other side of the Bug River means also for cargo transport different rules of operations. Railway infrastructure in countries like Russia, Belarus or Ukraine is based on broad-gauge tracks, they are 85mm broader than in Germany, Poland and most other Western European countries.

From the legal point of view, many things in railway transport change as well once you cross the border. Whereas in the
European Union goods are transported on the basis of CIM bills of lading, in CIS countries and in Baltic States SMGS document is valid, or, in some cases, common international bill of lading CIM/SMGS.

DB Cargo offers you the international bill of lading, acknowledged by both sides, which greatly simplifies border formalities.

Within the scope of international transport carried out through the eastern border we have possibilities to use transshipment services offered by neighbouring countries like Latvia, Belarus or Ukraine.

Using DB Cargo Polska railway transport services is related not only to significant decrease in broad gauge wagon circulation, which are at customer’s disposal within 24 hours. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to increase volume loaded in the originating station thanks to which you gain 5-7% of loading volume. It is possible due to the fact that broad gauge wagons are not transferred to the Polish side.

Using comprehensive DB Cargo Polska services within the scope of international cargo transport, we offer you the access to information concerning the consignment.

We would like to invite you to cooperation.
