DMS Wins Brookfield Award for the Second Time


DMS Moving Team winning Brookfield Award
In June, Brookfield Global Relocation Services (Brookfield) announced the winners of its annual Supply Chain Premier Service awards, which recognize suppliers who earned outstanding service scores in 2014. 

For the second consecutive year, DMS Moving Systems (0800) ha​s been recognized with Brookfield’s Supply Chain Premier Service Award in the Platinum category. It is a large accomplishment to receive this award for a second time. The 2014 Supply Chain Premier Service Award is given annually to suppliers who achieve outstanding service scores of 95% or higher in their service line. DMS was one of only 27 providers in Brookfield’s supplier network to be awarded this distinction. 

The Platinum Award reflects the commitment and hard work of every member of DMS, and furthermore to the support of Atlas Van Lines. From the great office team and the PVO’s ​who take to the road every day, each person helped earn this distinction.

Rick Meyer, President of DMS, was estatic to learn his company achieved such an accolade again. “It is a great honor for DMS to have been recognized by Brookfield for the second consecutive year as their top performing domestic household goods service provider. This is a testament to the entire DMS Team, who ​is committed to providing each transferee an exceptional relocation experience.”
