If it’s part of LP’s operations, Yuriy will be the guy.

In his time at Logistics Plus, Yuriy has played a key role in closing complex acquisitions, negotiating terms, financial conditions, and third-party financing. He has a consistent track record of delivering positive results to complex customers and business units by identifying and resolving complex issues that reduce cost, uncover waste, and drive profitability and effectiveness.
