Atlas Van Lines Brochure Outlines Benefits of New Astec(TM) System for Electronic Shipments

February 10, 1999

EVANSVILLE (Ind.) - Atlas Van Lines introduces a new four-color brochure offering detailed information on the recently launched Atlas Specialized Transportation Express Centers (ASTEC™). Specifically, the brochure explains how the Atlas Specialized Transportation Express Centers (ASTEC™) provides just what customers need for sensitive electronic shipments that are less than 3,000 pounds. Confirmed orders will be picked up within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.

ASTEC™ service, which is being offered in major metropolitan areas nationwide, includes continuous shipment tracking, any time, anywhere with the Atlas Satellite Equipment Tracking System (ASETS™). Atlas can use ASETS™ to change destinations en route, and to communicate with the van operator to confirm reception of the revised order.

The brochure also gives valuable information on ASTEC™ operators, who average over 12 years of experience transporting valuable and sensitive equipment, and the center's dedicated fleet that includes specialized equipment such as climate-controlled vans when required, full air-ride suspension tractors and trailers, and more.

For a free copy of the Atlas brochures, you can contact your local Atlas agent, or call the toll-free Atlas line at 1-800-852-6683.
