Founder of the Allen Lund Company

Allen Lund

The ALC Story

With $1,000 in his pocket, Allen Lund made the brave decision to start his own transportation brokerage company. It was 1976, when Allen Lund Company formally opened the first office in Los Angeles, adjacent to the produce market. Allen and his wife Kathie began what he referred to as “living the American dream.”   In 1994, an acquisition led to the creation of the ALC Logistics division, specializing in LTL freight and evolving into the software division. As years went on the company continued to grow, opening offices across the country, and in 2017, ALC became a 500M company: one of Allen’s dreams.

Under Allen’s guidance, his sons, David, Kenny, and Eddie became more involved in the day-to-day operations, all promoted to vice presidents along the way. Each son truly understands the business, inside, and out. Upon his passing in 2018, Allen left a financially sound and well-organized company.

ALC Logistics

Today ALC Logistics continues to operate under the leadership of the Allen Lund Company with Executive Vice President, Kenny Lund serving as head of the division.
