Allen Lund Company
Travel & Transportation
Founded in 1976 and headquartered in La Cañada, California, the Allen Lund Company is a national third-party transportation broker with over 30 offices across the United States. Employing more than 400 people and managing over 300,000 shipments annually, the Allen Lund Company works with shippers and carriers to arrange dry, refrigerated and flatbed freight.
To strengthen its market-leading position, the Allen Lund Company needed to provide value-added services while managing huge increases in transactions and partners—without breaking the bank.
The Allen Lund Company is moving to a highly automated and flexible approach to B2B integration—enabling it to eliminate many time-consuming management tasks and manual onboarding processes.
The Allen Lund Company doubled its EDI volumes in just one quarter, empowering it to deliver high-quality services at scale and help more shippers and carriers to move freight effectively.
