DB joining Star Alliance
Author: ShortlinesUSA

Despite the announcement being made a couple of weeks ago, I've seen very little info about this development.  I happened to see it in an airline industry news digest this morning, and found it of interest.  Maybe it will be to others here (or is terribly stale news).  Of note, DB seems to be working to enter the US logistics market, quietly purchasing distribution space and very recently acquiring US trucking firm USA Truck.  The DB logo so familiar in Europe may become common in the US before long.  We'll see.

Deutsche Bahn through its Schenker Logistics subsidiary has been active in the US for more than forty years. Operating mainly in cities east of the Mississippi as a 3PL.

Only 19 years; Shenker Logistics did not become part of DB family until they bought out the logistics firm Stinnes AG in 2003.
