EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Atlas Van Lines has awarded 52 agents with the Milton M. Hill Quality Award. One of the transportation industry's most distinguished performance awards, it was established in honor of the late Milton M. Hill of Alexander's Mobility Services, an agent of Atlas Van Lines.

The agents who earned the award demonstrated a commitment to superior warehouse and hauling operations, as well as to excellence in 12 criteria that measure quality. The award acknowledges agents who demonstrate excellence in the following areas:
  1. Superior warehouse rating – Recipients must earn high scores in random inspections that measure impression, organization, security and risk management.
  2. Hauling excellence – Agents qualify for this award based on customer service with their van operators and meeting hauling revenue requirements.
  3. World-class commitment – Recipients are measured on 12 standards, including customer service, customer satisfaction, estimating accuracy, claims ratio and compliance with Atlas standards of excellence.

"Although all Atlas agents uphold strict standards in quality and customer service, the agents who receive this award are those who follow Milt Hill's example and embody the utmost level of spirit and integrity," said Glen Dunkerson, president and chief operating officer of Atlas Van Lines. "The award acknowledges that each of these agents helps raise the bar on customer service – the same way Milt Hill did."
