Passion. Efficiency. Sustainability.

Creating added value successfully.

What defines us

At DB Procurement, we are responsible for purchasing more than 50% of the DB Group's value added on the global supplier market. This means that we make a significant contribution to the success of Deutsche Bahn – and that we have a big responsibility. Discover what this looks like and how we as a team work passionately to live up to this responsibility every day.

We make things possible

Every year, our 1,200 employees at more than 20 locations procure supplies and services worth EUR 24 billion through 1 million orders from around 20,000 suppliers.

We want to get better every day

We have set ourselves the goal of becoming a world-class procurement organization. We therefore regularly submit ourselves to external benchmarking, which has confirmed that we are delivering on this aim.

We procure for tomorrow's mobility today

We are actively shaping DB's digital transformation and ensuring sustainability and innovation – across the DB Group as well as for German industry and international business.

We are visible

People can see the results of our work every day. For example, we purchased the ICE 4, procured the complete infrastructure for the Berlin–Munich high-speed line (VDE 8) and are actively shaping the future of digital signaling technology.

We are a team

Internal surveys of all our staff show that employee satisfaction is above average. This strengthens our sense of unity at DB Procurement and allows us to celebrate successes together.

Achieving more together

Creating cooperations with our suppliers is crucial for the competitiveness of Deutsche Bahn. This is only possible on the basis of responsible management by our partners. We therefore ensure that sustainability principles are adhered to and, with our supplier management, rely on continuous improvement in supply security, cost levels and process efficiency.
