EVANSVILLE, IND. (November 8, 2013) — One of the nation's leading specialized transportation carriers, Atlas Van Lines, is recognizing seven agents as winners of the 2013 Specialized Transportation Group (STG) Quality Award. While the transportation of special items such as truckloads of new fixtures for a store remodel, traveling museum exhibits with irreplaceable items (dinosaur bones, fine art, etc.) or large trade show exhibits to be delivered and picked up within a short time span can all present challenges, these Atlas STG agents bring the constant creativity and knowledge to provide solutions for their customers' needs. Their logistical finesse serves shippers of fine art, store fixtures, trade shows, electronics and other unique or unusual items and products.

Atlas' Specialized Transportation Group Quality Award recognizes what it takes to shine in this uniquely demanding sector of the transportation industry. Among the criteria, agents must:

  • Do business as a full-service agency, meeting or exceeding eight of the quality standards of the Atlas World-Class Commitment;
  • Earn a facility rating of 5.0;
  • Have operated as an Atlas agent for a full convention year; and
  • Achieve combined booker and hauler revenue of at least $1,000,000 in Specialized Transportation business.

"Our STG agents exemplify what it means to provide an unwavering level of commitment, especially in the industry's specialized transportation marketplace," said Glen Dunkerson, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. "Upholding Atlas' reputation for providing quality, trustworthy service to our customers is imperative to us. We are proud to recognize our agents who help sustain our core company values when transporting special items or products for their customers."
