Logistics Planning Services (LPS) Given 2016 Family Business Award by Twin Cities Business Magazine

MINNEAPOLIS, November 1, 2016—Logistics Planning Services (LPS) announced today that it was recognized by Twin Cities Business magazine with a 2016 Minnesota Family Business Award.

Each year, the local publication said it “Honors five outstanding family-owned businesses and the value they add to Minnesota’s economy and overall quality of life. These businesses have strong records of success, family involvement, community service and philanthropy, multi-generational culture, and a positive family business structure.”

The family logistics company was incorporated in 1987 when Larry Hall began operations in Woodbury, Minn. Not that long afterward, Hall’s wife, Pamela Hall, joined the firm to create a foundation for what would become the company’s mission and core values.

LPS evolved into a business that gives back to the communities in which it operates.  Also, Pamela Hall’s work helped create a company culture that gave its employees a chance to do much more for charitable causes.

The leadership baton has since been passed on to the Hall children, Kirsten, LPS’s CEO, Nate, VP of marketing and communications and Justin, president. “When our parents launched LPS nearly 30 years ago, they didn’t realize the company would grow into a thriving organization that would employ over a hundred people and give so much to the causes we care about, such as veteran’s groups, and children’s charities. We’re all grateful to be recognized by Twin Cities Business magazine.”
