Thus, RTSB creates for freight forwarders and shippers significant benefits in terms of flexibility, reliability, price stability and monitoring of the entire transport chain.

Where we come from

RTSB, a privately owned family business, was established on 8-th of October 1996 in Germany. The founders of the company have realized early on that with the opening of the Eastern European and Central Asian markets, a strong need for standardized transportation services in Europe arose. From the beginning, the company focused on innovation and global presence. Thanks to the international presence, we can offer our transportation services in almost all places in the world and respond to the needs of each region.

Where we are today

Today the RTSB is one of the Germany’s leading rail forwarders. It relies on four strong core businesses:
