Big Week of Media Coverage at Logistics Plus

People-CollageThis past week was a busy, and exciting week of media coverage for Logistics Plus at our global headquarters in Erie, PA. Earlier in the week Yuriy Ostapyak, director of global operations, Michelle Fontaine, global sales manager, and Jenny Melgert, Dallas branch manager, all participated in an interview with an editor for Supply Chain World magazine.

Yuriy talked about the company, our services and technology, and our general philosophy regarding people, customers, and projects. Michelle talked in more detail about our approach to working with customers and how we build and cultivate relationships. Canadian Solar Inc. was used as an example (which, coincidentally is also being interviewed by Supply Chain World magazine). Jenny was able to shed some light on our operational excellence and how we work to integrate ourselves with our customers and their supply chains. Both the Logistics Plus and the Canadian Solar articles will appear in the winter issue of Supply Chain Worldmagazine which hits newsstands in a few weeks.

Yesterday, we had the senior writer and managing editor for Business Magazine (a publication of the Manufacturer & Business Association) on-site for an interview Jim Berlin, CEO, and owner of Logistics Plus, Adam Mook, compliance department manager, and Gretchen Blough, licensed customs broker. Jim gave an update on the company, recent growth, and future plans for expansion – both globally and within the Erie, Pa. community. Adam and Gretchen both discussed our global trade compliance services and how we help companies with their import and export activities. In particular, they provided details and examples of how we help companies navigate the complex world of global duties, tariffs, and regulations through training programs and other dedicated services.

Business Magazine also had a professional photographer on-hand for the interview taking pictures of our people in action and in settings around our global headquarters (the historic Union Station in Erie, Pa.). A couple of notable shots taken were of our LTL/brokerage staff in front of the painted railroad bridge just outside our offices, and then an all-inclusive shot of almost all of our nearly 100 Erie-based employees in The Brewerie dining area – one of the great tenants that leases a part of our building. The collage above contains some “non-professional” pictures taken during the photoshoot.

The feature article and final photographs will appear in the January 2015 issue of Business Magazine. Stay tuned for more details on both of these media features. If you want to learn more about Logistics Plus in the meantime, please visit us online at or contact us for more information.
