• 2015 Moving Migration Patterns - Northern Exposure, Southern Charm

    From January through December 2015, Atlas Van Lines in the U.S. and Canada ​performed 77,705 household goods moves between states, provinces, and across the border. In general, the mosaic pattern of migration trends shows compasses pointing south, with a few exceptions.

    The provinces appear largely outbound, an exodus slightly tempered by Newfoundland’s and Nova Scotia’s climbs into the balanced category. The picture is similar for the U.S., with outbound status predominating the northern tier of the lower 48 states.
  • Convention Recap: Blazing New Places

    The 68th annual Atlas World Group Convention visited Tucson, AZ this past November and we reckon it drew quite a crowd. Over 650 attendees consisting of Atlas Agents, Atlas subsidiaries, and preferred suppliers gathered at the annual event, making it one of the most highly attended Conventions of the past decade.

    “Tucson has great climate in November, plus it’s fairly easy to get to, which makes it a great destination for the Atlas Convention,” said Daniel Ozbun, Founder of Daniel’s Moving & Storage (0875), which has two locations in Arizona. “We liked the location because as a host agent, our staff was able to get involved and have some fun with the Big Blue Jean Roundup.”
  • Diverse Entrepreneurs, Following a Common Vision

    Over the last year and a half, the Amplifier® has reported on how Atlas leadership is facing the future. We looked at forces squeezing the industry: pricing, capacity, and compliance. We wrote about the design of a five-year plan, Vision 2018. Most recently, we trained our sights on value as a key differentiator for the Atlas brand.

    In this issue, we bring a “boots on the ground” perspective. How do Atlas Agents view the unfolding strategy? Is it answering the questions of pricing, capacity, and compliance? Where do opportunities still exist?

    Atlas Agencies are independently owned and operated. Some employ hundreds of people, some employ a handful. Most offer the entire range of moving and storage services, but some serve niche markets. Some have flown the Atlas flag for generations, others are fairly new to the brand. Such diversity has always been fundamental to the van line’s character.
