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.” 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 has worked the brokerage desk and truly understands the business, inside and out. Additionally, son-in-law Steve Doerfler has risen through the ranks from broker to company CFO. Upon his passing in 2018, Allen left a financially sound and well organized company.
