Link Securities | The German government, through Deutsche Bahn (DB), has launched the largest train order in its history, with the aim of improving service quality, according to Expansión newspaper.

Thus, it wants to sign a contract programme for up to 95 units of ICE high-speed trains, with a first order of 33 trains to be put into operation in 2030. In terms of volume, it is an investment budget of more than €3 billion.
