Jim Berlin Named to Smart Business Pittsburgh “Smart 50” List a Second Time

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jim Berlin Named to Smart Business Pittsburgh “Smart 50” List a Second Time

The Smart 50 Awards recognize the top executives of the smartest companies in the region.

pit_cs_Smart50_1122ERIE, PA (November 3, 2022) – Logistics Plus, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics, and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce that its founder and CEO, Jim Berlin, has been selected by the judging panel of Smart Business Pittsburgh to be a 2022 Smart 50 Award honoree. Jim was previously recognized with a 2017 Smart 50 Award.

The Smart 50 Awards recognize the top executives of the 50 smartest companies in the region for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations. All 50 winners were honored at a special celebration on November 1st at Duquesne Club in Pittsburgh and will be featured in a special editorial report in the November edition of Smart Business Pittsburgh magazine.

As part of the honors, Smart Business noted the following on its website: “With a background as a truck driver and political activist, Logistics Plus Inc. Founder and CEO Jim Berlin took a gamble 26 years ago with one customer, a one-year purchase order and three employees to create a highly successful global logistics enterprise. The company continues to grow and expand under Berlin’s unique and passionate leadership. His philosophy of saying yes to virtually any challenge has led to a company that provides almost any solution needed across a supply chain. In 2003, he bought the dilapidated Union Station building in downtown Erie for his global headquarters. Investments in charities, the commissioning of murals to combat blight, and the ongoing training of hundreds of interns have created an organization that is as committed to the community as it is to its success.

Logistics Plus is Named a Top 50 Leading 3PL by Global Trade Magazine

It’s the third time in the past four years Logistics Plus has been honored.

Logistics Plus is Named a Top 50 Leading 3PL by Global Trade MagazineERIE, PA (October 18, 2022) – Logistics Plus, Inc. (LP), a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics, and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce it has been named one of America’s Top 50 best third-party logistics providers by Global Trade magazine. It is the third time in the past four years Global Trade has recognized Logistics Plus as one of its leading 3PL providers.

The 2022 leading 3PL providers list was announced in the September-October edition of Global Trade magazine. The article states, “Each company recognized on our list has been placed in a specific award category. This is not to suggest that it is the only ability or service that 3PL nails for its customers. For instance, we have Logistics Plus under the 4PL/LLP (Lead Logistics Provider) category this year, but the Erie, Pennsylvania-based company would have fit just as worthy of our E-Commerce or Technology awards.”

“Being recognized as an industry leader by a reputable publication like Global Trade is a tremendous honor,” said Jim Berlin, Founder & CEO of Logistics Plus. “As a twenty-first-century logistics company, staying nimble and providing modern solutions to today’s supply chain challenges is what we do. So, being recognized for that is very gratifying.”
