Allen Lund Company Welcomes New Director of Perishable Logistics

The Allen Lund Company welcomes their new Director of Perishable Logistics Andy Shoemaker. Shoemakers’ role will be identifying and nurturing produce business growth opportunities for ALC. Andy will be an invaluable asset for Allen Lund Company for his industry expertise.

“We are excited to have someone with Andy’s experience come to work for us. The produce business is paramount to our success and our expectation is that Andy will help grow this segment for us with multiple shippers,” said Edward Lund President of Allen Lund Company.

Shoemaker has more than 30 years of experience as a sales and marketing leader in the food business. His expertise is foodservice national account development, contracting, market share, and branding as well as a key contributor in developing and implementing strategies to build a multi-billion world-class produce supplier.

Bob Rose, VP of Produce Sales commented, “I couldn’t be happier to add Andy Shoemaker as our Director of Perishable Logistics to the Allen Lund family. Allen Lund began his journey hauling produce across the USA. Our core business today centers around the cold chain and keeping our customers fulfilled. Andy has been in all aspects of the produce business with most of his time spent with Taylor Farms. He brings a unique perspective to ALC as he understands what our customers go through on a daily, weekly, yearly basis. We welcome Andy in his new role and know he will help make us even stronger in the perishable landscape.”

Shoemaker added, “I’ve been in the industry for a long time and have always admired the reputation and culture the Allen Lund Company had. When I realized I still wanted to work and utilize my talents, traits, relationships, etc., it was the reputation of ALC that enticed me to “get back in the hunt.”
