Over 30 years of dangerous goods freight forwarding

In 1989, five forwarders and operators joined forces to create BTT Bahn Tank Transport GmbH. The mission: to shift the transport of dangerous goods to rail. Since then, we have been successfully implementing transport concepts with a focus on rail. We became part of Deutsche Bahn AG in 1994. In recent years, we have increasingly added new services to supplement our transport logistics. The market recognises DB Cargo BTT as an innovator in rail logistics services for chemicals and mineral oil.
