Accel Expands Availability to Serve COD Customers

Aug 06, 2008

Accel, Atlas' premium option for expedited delivery, has expanded again. On April 1, Atlas announced the addition of service for COD and self-directed moves. With Accel, families can relocate faster to settle in and feel at home quicker in new surroundings. "Based on its success with our national accounts, we are pleased to now offer Accel to our customers outside the corporate arena," says Atlas Van Lines President and COO Greg Hoover. "This opens yet another avenue of growth with an important segment of customers."


Atlas introduced Accel in January 2007. In its first full year of operation, Accel generated over $2 million in revenue with service to customers in 58 major metro markets across the U.S. In October 2007, the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award Partnership (CQIA) awarded a Gold Innovation Prize to Cartus for its "Small Shipment Containerized Program," a program that uses Atlas Accel exclusively.

"Accel has performed in the market just as anticipated," says Greg. "It has carved a unique niche with its combination of speed, security, and simplicity. We are confident that, as more customers experience this service option for themselves, its popularity as a complement to traditional choices will continue to grow."

Customers interested in Accel can access information, pricing, and ordering assistance through Atlas agents and online at the Atlas public web site. Visit:
