Boasting over 20 years of experience from some of the world’s largest logistics companies, Lana Kruger is a well-known advocate for women’s rights and equality as well as a co-author of Back Yourself, a book providing advice and inspiration for women working to create their dream businesses & life. As founder and CEO of the Australia-based Megna Group of Companies, she is one of the few women in the male-dominated industry today. With the goal of providing one-stop, personalized solutions, Lana opened The Megna Group in 2018, which has since won the 2020 AusMumpreneur Silver Multicultural Award and was named a finalist in five additional categories. The innovative, end-to-end supply chain provider specializes in e-commerce fulfillment, packaging, and freight for all brands, from startups to global giants, as well as the customization of marketing materials for wholesalers and retailers. “Our people, values, and solutions drive our passion for re-imagining the supply chain for businesses throughout Australia, the U.K., New Zealand, and the U.S.,” Lana explains.
With a core focus of creating efficiencies through automation and technology, Megna Group strives to make every process simple and proactive ─ ultimately adding value to their customer’s bottom line. For instance, the company’s software automates everything from the shopping cart process to delivery and produces instant “best priced” rates for Megna Group’s Carriers, of each online checkout. “Clients are provided the cheapest rates, even if Megna Group doesn’t do their fulfillment,” notes Lana.
After starting out in the express international freight industry with TNT, Lana went on to hold a variety of leadership positions with freight-forwarding companies such as DB Schenker. Her work experience not only inspired her to reimagine the industry, but to also promote women. “Megna is a combination of my daughter Megan’s name and my own,” explains Lana, who is well on her way to building a legacy for her family while simultaneously inspiring and empowering women globally.
