FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Logistics Plus Named to Inc.’s 2021 Best in Business List
in the Logistics & Transportation Category
2nd annual list recognizes 196 private companies that put purpose before profit.
ERIE, PA (December 7, 2021) – Logistics Plus Inc. (LP), a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics, and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce it has been named to the Inc. 2021 Best in Business list. Logistics Plus was one of only four companies honored in the Logistics & Transportation category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 14), recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “What began for us during the pandemic as an effort to showcase companies that were helping the community has grown into a recognition of social, environmental, and economic impact. The companies on this year’s list are changemakers with heart – and they’re pouring the best of their business into the people and communities around them.”
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 49 different industries – from finance to software to engineering to fashion, and more – and in age-based and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits – a huge success for these honors in the list’s second year.
“I am proud of our people and how they continue to adapt and grow in this challenging environment,” said Jim Berlin, Founder & CEO of Logistics Plus. “Doing the right thing with a passion for excellence has always been a part of our culture. Supplying PPE to organizations around the world during the onset of COVID, becoming one of the first 3PLs to attain plastic neutrality, investing in inner-city development – these are all important ways we can make a positive impact. I believe in Karma, and what comes around goes around. So, it’s an honor to receive an acknowledgment from the Inc. editorial staff that what we are doing is making a difference.”
