Commenting on the move, Eddie Lund, VP Sales & Branch Operations, said: “This new warehouse allows us to provide better customer service, be more diverse with our products, and allows us to grow. We are excited about the expansion and the opportunities that are now available to TransKool. We also want to thank our current customers who trusted us from the beginning and have made this possible.”
Established in 1949, Santos International is a leading international freight forwarding company providing warehousing and U.S. Customs brokerage services to industries across the U.S. and Mexico. Allen Lund Company is a national third-party transportation broker with nationwide offices working with shippers and carriers across the nation to arrange for dry, refrigerated (specializing in produce), and flatbed freight.
Scott Fletcher, Manager of ALC Dallas office stated, “Our first year with TransKool was extremely successful from an operational standpoint though we learned that we needed additional accommodations to be more efficient during the peak seasons. With our new facility we meet these goals and we also almost doubled the number of dock doors adding further efficiency.”
