EVANSVILLE, Ind.— More than 400 Atlas Van Lines' agents are now part of the American Moving and Storage Association ("AMSA"). AMSA is the United States' leading moving services professional association, setting nationwide standards and guidelines for the industry.

"This is a significant step for Atlas because AMSA only grants membership to moving companies that exemplify superior customer service," said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group.  "The fact that we are able to extend membership across the board speaks volumes for the reputation and standards of our company," Dunkerson added.

Through AMSA's "ProMover" designation-which is bestowed to moving companies that pass rigorous background checks-to its detailed Code of Ethics, AMSA helps ensure adherence to the highest standards of customer service. As members, all Atlas agents will be ProMovers.

"It is unique that an industry leader the size of Atlas has demonstrated its support of AMSA's standards at one time, on such a large scale," said Linda Bauer, AMSA president and CEO. "With all agents as certified members of AMSA, customers can rest assured their critical moving projects are in the hands of experienced, certified professionals."

Extending the AMSA membership to all agents was an easy decision according to Dunkerson.  "Our agents distinguish Atlas as a great company to work with and to work for," said Dunkerson. "The level of integrity that we expect and provide to our customers is wholly consistent with what AMSA represents.  This move will only serve to strengthen our brand."
