Recognition is acknowledgement of innovation, impact, and sustainability at Logistics Plus.

ERIE, PA - 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 2017 Smart 50 Award honoree.

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 will be honored at a special celebration on November 9th at The Fairmont Pittsburgh, and featured in a special editorial report in the November edition of Smart Business Pittsburgh. Three organizations, yet to be named, will also receive specialty awards for their achievements in three category areas - innovation, impact and sustainability. Additionally, all guests will be treated to a keynote address on what it takes to lead a successful “smart” company.

“What Jim is doing in this region is truly to be commended,” said Dustin S. Klein, Smart Business Publisher & COO. “On behalf of our sponsors, Smart Business, Arthur J. Gallagher, Highmark, Huntington, Clark Hill, All Covered, WordWrite Communications, The Fairmont Pittsburgh and Convero, it is our honor to recognize Jim for his leadership which has fueled great success at Logistics Plus.”

“I never thought anyone would recognize me as being smart - delusional, perhaps, but not smart,” said Jim Berlin, founder and CEO of Logistics Plus. “But I am proud of what we have accomplished here at Logistics Plus and over the past 21 years. Not only have we provided good, fun and interesting jobs to over 500 people around the world - including nearly 200 here in northwestern PA - we’ve also been able to help revitalize the region through our social and economic support. I believe in karma. If you do good things, it will come back to you.”
