La Cañada Flintridge Calif., April 7, 2014 – The Allen Lund Company has been awarded the 2013 “Best in Cargo Security Award” by CargoNet® for its theft prevention program. CargoNet is a division of Verisk Crime Analytics, a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq: VRSK) company.
The award acknowledges CargoNet members that demonstrate leading practices in cargo security through the use of technology, information sharing, standard operating procedures, and support & engagement of the CargoNet program. “It’s always a challenge for intermediaries to justify a return on their security investment,” said Anthony Canale, general manager, CargoNet. “Allen Lund Company clearly understands the importance of cargo security and continually applies the appropriate resources to protect its customers’ freight,” he added.
Kenny Lund, vice president of support operations, Allen Lund Company, said, “The CargoNet services allow our company to provide more tools to protect our customers’ cargo. Just a few months ago, CargoNet was able to facilitate the recovery of a load valued at $40,000.” Lund added, “They provide information and alerts to help us take appropriate measures on higher risk loads, and we are proud to be recognized for our extra efforts to help protect our shippers and carriers.”
