EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Atlas Van Lines has awarded 65 agents with the 2008 – 2009 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. Hill was known for excellent and innovative customer service that set many standards in the industry.

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.

"Atlas agents are known for delivering exceptional service," said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. "But this award acknowledges our very best agents – those companies that follow in Milt Hill's footsteps by consistently exceeding Atlas' stringent quality and service excellence measures."
