Kombiverkehr traditionally sees itself as an architect of unaccompanied Combined Transport. The core business, that is to say the development, organisation and marketing of needs-driven services in road-rail Combined Transport, is complemented by a large number of supporting business fields.
Given that its aim is to offer the customer an efficient and cost-effective transport solution, one of the policies pursued by Kombiverkehr is active involvement at a wide variety of places within the transport chain. By way of example, Kombiverkehr provides IT systems for rapid and straightforward communication, has equity interests in terminals, designs and purchases wagons, and advises third parties on numerous matters related to Combined Transport. In addition, Kombiverkehr is a licensed public railway operator.
The individual complementary business fields are:
Kombiverkehr has applied its know-how to the operation of handling facilities and to new and expansion projects for many years and it has interests in terminal operating companies at key locations, in other operators and in companies with close links to Combined Transport. Kombiverkehr will continue to follow this successful strategy in the future and work with its partners to ensure that the necessary foundations for the further growth of Combined Transport are laid.

Kombiverkehr has spent years working on IT systems designed to make collaboration on the daily scheduling of transport services as simple as possible for you. This not only includes a variety of electronic and, to some extent, online booking applications, but also the electronic transfer of invoicing data and the provision of an internet-supported system for tracking consignments, named CESAR.
Kombiverkehr established KombiConsult GmbH to act as an independent consulting firm whose services are aimed specifically at third parties. KombiConsult specialises in solutions to problems in the logistics chain for Combined Transport and in rail freight transport in general.
Professional advice for customers on the planning, execution and optimisation of Combined Transport services and specific concepts for individual regions are at the forefront of logistics planning. You will find more information under the menu item "Logistics concepts".

Kombiverkehr has been a licensed public railway operator since November 1999. This means that the company can buy slots on routes directly from the network operators and then has the option of using its own traction.
