Annual revenue of DSB 2012-2018

Over the last seven years, the revenue generated by DSB (short for Danske Statsbaner) fluctuated slightly. In 2014, the government-owned railway company reached its highest value, of roughly 12.8 billion Danish kroner. Afterwards, the revenue decreased to 11.86 billion Danish kroner as of 2018. Similarly, the number of customers of Danske Statsbaner fluctuated as well.

Routes and train stations served by DSB

In the middle of the 19th century, the first train route in Denmark was inaugurated between the stations Copenhagen and Roskilde. Further sections opened gradually. DSB was founded in 1885 and bought up these routes by and by. Today, the railway company serves more than 200 train stations in Denmark, Sweden, and Germany, although the amount steadily decreased in recent years.

Importance of railway transportation in Denmark

Compared to the turnover of other transportation means, railway transportation in Denmark is not among the highest. According to a statistic from 2015, railway ranked seventh among different modes, generating roughly one billion euros. In comparison, the revenue of sea transportation amounted to more than 25 billion euros. However, the Danish government invested more and more money in railway infrastructure during the past years.
