Hello world! We (the Logistics Plus family) would like to welcome you to The Berlin Wall. We created Berlin’s Wall as a writing outlet for our respected, founder and CEO. Here is his bio:
After a 20-year career in the less-than truckload (LTL) industry, the majority of that time spent at TNT/USF Red Star, Jim founded Logistics Plus in 1996 with only three employees, one customer and a $120,000 purchase order. Though he is a New York City native, since relocating to Erie, PA, Jim has invested heavily in the community’s economic development. In 2003, he renovated the 80-year-old former train station and made it the company’s global headquarters, and he actively participates in a number of civic initiatives. In addition to many company awards, Jim has been honored as a Most Admired CEO by the Manufacturer and Business Association (MBA), and Ernst & Young (EY) recognized Jim as Western Pennsylvania’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2004. In 2005 he was named to the lifelong EY Entrepreneur of the Year World Hall of Fame. In addition to his company and community activities, Jim is also a member of the Business Advisory Council for the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
On so, on behalf of the entire Logistics Plus global family of employees (now 450+ strong), we hope you enjoy Jim’s writings, ramblings, wit, and wisdom … just as we do every day!
