Strong Links to Service

Nov 03, 2009

It's true that chains are only as strong as their links. Atlas Van Lines is proud to recognize the strongest links in the chain of customer service – Atlas agents who inspire quality by their extraordinary example. They are the recipients of the 2008-2009 Milton M. Hill Quality Award and those who have met the World Class Commitment standards – measures of performance that span every aspect of an Atlas agency's business.

The Highest Bar: Milton M. Hill Quality Award

Milton M. Hill Quality Award winners must meet or exceed tough standards in hauling, quality performance, warehousing, and operations. In addition to strict internal evaluations, they are accountable in the ultimate test of worthiness, the honest opinions of customers.

The first requirement for recognition hinges on random inspections of warehouses. Appearance, impression, organization, security, and risk management are paramount; the agent must score at least a 90 percent rating.

The agency must also demonstrate hauling excellence. This requires at least $750,000 in household goods revenue, high customer satisfaction with van operators, and satisfactory performance in claims and safety.

Too, the candidate must handle at least 175 household goods shipments and earn a favorable response among 90 percent of customers to the question of whether they would choose Atlas again.

Atlas is proud to recognize these agencies as recipients of the 2008-2009 Milton M. Hill Quality Award.
