Meet Jim Berlin (Founder & CEO)
After a 20-year career in the less-than-truckload (LTL) industry, most 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, Jim has invested heavily in the community’s economic development since relocating to Erie, PA. In 2003, he renovated the 80-year-old former train station and made it the company’s global headquarters, and he actively participates in many 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.
