LP is consistently recognized as one of the fastest-growing privately-owned transportation and logistics companies, a top 3PL, a top freight brokerage and warehousing provider, a leading project cargo manager, and a great place to work. With our trademark Passion for Excellence™, our global employees put the ‘plus‘ in logistics by doing the big things properly, plus the countless little things that ensure complete customer satisfaction and success.
3PL, 3½PL, or 4PL Solutions
GE Transportation (now known as Wabtec Corp.) was our very first partner. Today they top a list of loyal customers that span many industries, including automotive; aerospace and aviation; chemicals and refining; consumer products; energy and solar; furniture and fixtures; government and defense; pharmaceuticals and healthcare; manufacturing and industrial; retail and wholesale; small businesses and startups; and many others.
Logistics Plus offers a breadth of simple, reliable, and affordable services, including less-than-truckload (LTL); truckload; air and ocean freight forwarding; expedited freight and air charters; warehousing and fulfillment; project cargo and break bulk; customs brokerage; importer/exporter of record (IOR/EOR); and global trade compliance. Working as your 3PL, 3½PL, or 4PL partner, we’re the company that handles supply chain challenges from start to finish by doing what other logistics companies can’t or won’t do. We’re small enough to be agile and responsive to your needs, yet large enough to have a network of solutions that span your entire supply chain.

About Jim Berlin
After a 20-year career in the less-than-truckload (LTL) industry, the majority of that time spent at TNT/USF Red Star, Jim founded Logistics Plus in 1996 with only three employees, one customer, and a $120,000 purchase order. Though he is a New York City native, since relocating to Erie, PA, Jim has invested heavily in the community’s economic development. In 2003, he renovated the 80-year-old former train station and made it the company’s global headquarters, and he actively participates in a number of civic initiatives. In addition to many company awards, Jim has been honored as a Most Admired CEO by the Manufacturer and Business Association (MBA), and Ernst & Young (EY) recognized Jim as Western Pennsylvania’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2004. In 2005 he was named to the lifelong EY Entrepreneur of the Year World Hall of Fame. In addition to his company and community activities, Jim is also a member of the Business Advisory Council for the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
