ERIE, PA (May 16, 2018) – Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, reports that its final 2017 U.S. sales were 1000 times greater than the amount it reported in its first year of business. Jim Berlin founded Logistics Plus in 1996 with three employees serving a single customer on a $120,000 purchase order. Last year the company enjoyed record-setting U.S. revenue of $127.3 million (not including overseas offices), which was nearly 50% greater than the year prior and more than 1000 times greater than its inaugural year-end.

Logistics is a trillion-dollar industry.
