Executive Vice President, Kenny Lund spoke on November 9th to students of Intro to Supply Chain classes taught by Professor John Golden at Marquette University.
As the guest lecturer, he went in depth about the role third-party logistics providers play in the supply chain and Allen Lund Company’s place and history in the industry. Established in 1976, ALC has served as a transportation broker with 47 years of experience in helping to move dry, refrigerated, and flatbed freight.
Kenny enjoyed teaching and sharing his 30+ years of knowledge about the supply chain. Aware that students would be considering a career in the industry, he was happy to provide his perspective about how exciting and varied the field is using his career journey as a reference.
“I had a great time being the guest lecturer for Supply Chain classes at Marquette. It was fun to be back in the classroom. The students asked excellent questions as we covered the many facets of logistics. The Marquette program is one of the best in the nation and continues to challenge and educate students”, Kenny stated.
