EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Atlas Van Lines has awarded 63 agents with the 2008 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, and has been awarded annually since 1996.

Agents who earn the award demonstrate a commitment to superior warehouse and hauling operations, as well as to excellence in 12 criteria that measure quality. The award recognizes agents who demonstrate excellence in the following areas:

  1. Superior warehouse rating – Recipients must earn high scores in surprise inspections that measure organization, security, risk management and overall impression.
  2. Hauling excellence – Agents qualify for this award based on customer service provided by their van operators and by 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.

"All Atlas agents are committed to raising the bar on customer service," said Greg Hoover, president and chief operating officer of Atlas World Group. "So this award acknowledges the highest tier – those agents that consistently exceed our quality and service excellence measures, just as Milt Hill did."
