The Services Business Unit covers six different sectors: DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung (Vehicle Maintenance), DB Systel (ICT), DB Services, DB Fuhrpark (Motor Vehicle Fleet) as well as DB Kommunikationstechnik (Communications) and DB Sicherheit (Security).

Therefore we have bundled our service activities into the DB Services business unit. The business unit encompasses six different areas: DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung (vehicle maintenance), DB Systel, DB Services, DB Fuhrpark (fleet management), as well as DB Kommunikationstechnik (communications technology) and DB Sicherheit (security). DB Group companies are the main customers of the primarily transport related infrastructure management and infrastructure-close services. Non-Group business is aimed above all at optimizing capacity utilization, quality and price benchmarking, and the future positioning of the business unit’s supplementary infrastructure-related offers.
The DB Services business unit’s nationwide service portfolio is consistently geared to the needs of intra-Group customers, with services tailored to specific customers and a high level of quality and performance at prices that are fundamentally aligned to market levels.
