Germany / DB, Siemens and Stadler plan joint company

A consortium of German state railway DB and the two manufacturers Siemens and Stadler is planning to set up a joint company in order to improve its chances of winning the contracts for the two suburban rail (S-Bahn) sub-networks Nord-Süd and Stadtbahn in Berlin (((22/2020-80566))). The foundation is currently being examined by the Cartel Office. The aim of the new company is to provide infrastructure services for rail networks, supply of rolling stock, regional passenger transport services, maintenance and repair services for rolling stock. In May 2021, the competitors, a consortium of Alstom and Transdev, had announced that they were considering withdrawing from the tender because they considered themselves to be at a disadvantage (((20/2021-95296))).
