I am proud to be a small part of the two organizations that have contributed their time, energy and expertise to make this happen. “This shipper broker contract is the first of its kind to serve the production industry,” said Ken Lund, Vice President, Assistance Operations, Allen Lund Company, Inc., “This model will save many hours for association members who use it. It was compiled by experts who worked hard to establish a fair document so that the parties could do more business together. I am very proud of the United Fresh Produce Association as it continues to provide tools to become a member in order to be more efficient and profitable. The United Fresh Produce Association announces the release of the model transportation agreement for brokers/shippers.
