Germany, Russia: DB and Russian Railways RZD establish logistics company Trans-Eurasia Logistics

March 2008.

Deutsche Bahn AG and the Russian Railways RZD completed the establishment of the Trans-Eurasia Logistics joint venture with their partners Polzug, Kombiverkehr and Transcontainer.

Following the signing of the contract in July 2007, the joint venture has now also been cleared by the antitrust authorities. The objective of the joint venture, which is based in Berlin, is to provide single-source logistics services for the transportation of containers between Western Europe and Russia, which will considerably simplify rail freight transportation on this route.

“This is another important step on the way towards developing competitive railroad services to
Russia and Central Asia. As a next step, we plan to establish a trilateral joint venture with our Russian partner RZD and the Chinese Railways, so that we will soon be able to provide regular services to and from China as well”, said Dr. Norbert Bensel, Member of Deutsche Bahn AG’s Management Board for Transportation and Logistics, when the contract was signed in Berlin. “Trans-Eurasia Logistics will help to provide reliable and regular transportation services”, said Dr. Sebastian Jürgens, Head of the Intermodal Business Unit.

Trans-Eurasia Logistics will start as an operator providing direct services from
Germany to Moscow. Shuttle trains from Germany’s business centers, for instance, will be combined to provide regular block-train services to Moscow. Freight from Russia will be transported to Brest at the border between Poland and Belarus, from where the freight will be fed into the train systems of Polzug and Kombiverkehr and transported to destinations in Western Europe.
