Our office here in Los Angeles is the flagship office of the Allen Lund Company. It is the office that started it all, way back in 1976 when Mr. Allen Lund had a large, young family, a real vision and a lot of ambition. From his tireless dedication and drive to provide the industry with service built on excellence, our company was launched and our office is the first of so many who have helped to carry out his dream. Over the years, we have flourished and grown having never lost sight of what is important: being the very best provider of brokerage service in the industry, providing complete customer satisfaction, and maintaining our excellent reputation among shippers, carriers and drivers.
Here in LA we currently have a very well seasoned and tenured team with countless years of experience in all aspects of transportation brokerage. Half of our team members are produce and perishable specialists who routinely manage an average of 1000-1500 loads per month of California and Arizona’s agricultural bounty, ensuring its safe and timely arrival to all points east, north and south. Another part of our team members handle another 600-800 loads per month of dry freight which ships primarily by truck, but also by rail. We will happily take on any transportation challenge and provide the best solution, no matter the request.
On a more personal note, I love this work and it has kept me coming back day after day, year after year for 28 years because it is never, ever the same day twice. The work is always challenging, always exciting. I learn something new every single day. There is always a touch of chaos in the air and we all thrive in it. To help people grasp the complexity of what we do every day, I have always offered this visual comparison: it’s a lot like coming to work in the morning and encountering a 3000 piece jigsaw puzzle that someone has dumped on your desk. Your job is to get that very last piece in place before you leave for the day. Often times someone will walk by during the day and dump it over again, maybe more than once or twice, at which point you have to start over. Then, when you get in tomorrow, there’s a whole new and different puzzle and the process starts all over!
We are a highly specialized team who are available 24/7/365 to take care of our customers and carrier’s needs, no matter how small. In this business, relationships and integrity are everything, and we stand by ours. We look forward to hearing from you!
