EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Atlas Van Lines has awarded 56 agents with the 2009-2010 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.

"This award is the ultimate mark of distinction among our Atlas agents," said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. "We are proud to recognize those companies that follow in Milt Hill's footsteps by consistently exceeding Atlas' high quality and service standards. These recipients are the best of the best."

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:

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

"Since 1996, Atlas has been pleased to honor our agents with the prestigious Milton M. Hill Quality Award," said Jack Griffin, president and COO of Atlas Van Lines. "Milton M. Hill was a model for customer service and these 56 recipients of his namesake award also exemplify customer service."
