Eddie Lund Discusses The Allen Lund Company's History and Plans for Growth
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - The Allen Lund Company has been a transportation expert and go-to in the produce industry for 42 years and counting. With such a longstanding tradition, I speak with Eddie Lund, President, to find out more about the company’s history and its plans for the future.
“My dad was a produce man. He always loved this business. This is where he got started. It’s important to us to continue my dad’s legacy and that was taking care of your customers, taking care of your employees, and taking care of your community,” Eddie tells me. “It’s a big part of our business and we started with all those exempt commodities, which included produce. Because of those 42 years, we have a lot of great experience. It’s considered probably a niche market in the trucking industry, but it’s one we thrive at because of our expertise.”
With deep roots in both the trucking and produce industries that has helped the Allen Lund Company build itself up to where it is today, I ask Eddie what the next steps are to continue the company’s legacy into the future?
“There’s a couple of different avenues where we can grow, and we have been growing. We’ve hit 500 million in 2017, and now we’re on pace for 600 million,” Eddie says. “How we behave and how we interact with our community—people like United Fresh and other industries are really important to us. We’re happy to be here. We’re excited for where we’re going.”
