Members of the National Watermelon Association now have access to a special service from the Allen Lund Co. to help with the transportation of their fruit.

The Lakeland, Fla.-based association has partnered with Allen Lund to launch the Transportation Associations Program, or TAP, according to a news release from the La Cañada, Calif., logistics firm.

The two entities have worked together for many years, Kenny Lund, vice president, said in the news release.

“The Allen Lund Co. has been a member of the NWA for many years,” Lund said in the release. “This (program) gives NWA members another option for transportation and we are 100% committed to providing the very best transportation program.”

Specific services available through TAP include:

  •  Priority status for capacity in tight markets;
  •  Lane analysis including year-end reporting;
  •  Discounted live load tracking via Locus Traxx; and
  •  Discount on Allen Lund Co. software.
