New Synergy in Atlas Logistics

10/10/2013 Atlas Logistics logo, with AWG Logistics logo, Atlas Specialized Transportation logo, and Titan logo.
One year ago, Atlas introduced AWG Logistics, a full-service, third-party logistics provider. Following its solid first year, Atlas now brings together all logistics operations under one group, Atlas Logistics. 

Atlas Logistics is a group of three uniquely qualified Atlas companies, each of which brings technology, proven networks and specific operations knowledge to round out a complete logistics service offering. AWG Logistics, Atlas Specialized Transportation, and Titan Global Distribution already work with the world's largest manufacturers, retailers, health care providers and hospitality corporations. 

By bringing all three Atlas companies under one umbrella, Atlas makes formal the seamless operations that these Atlas companies are delivering to client partners around the globe. Acknowledging the synergy of these Atlas companies, and promoting increased operating efficiencies in service and systems is the best way to continue improving world-class logistics services. "Our customers will benefit from the synergy of our combined operations," says Matt Van der Linde, Vice President and General Manager, AWG Logistics. "We now offer a single, highly responsive and competitive resource for virtually any logistics scenario. As a result, we can better serve our logistics customers and more effectively grow the business." 

Atlas Logistics provides complete origin-to-destination service with special expertise in the retail, restaurant, exhibits and hospitality markets. Atlas Logistics also has the ability to handle global solutions for transportation, warehousing and installation; and special strengths in store fixtures, exhibits, fine art, electronics, hospitality and health care. 

Atlas Logistics is further supported by proven networks of Atlas agents. In North America alone, the Atlas agent network connects Atlas Logistics to over 650 warehouses with over 18 million square feet of secure space. 

The combination of the Atlas agents and the time-proven network of service partners built by each of the three companies makes Atlas Logistics a single-source link for comprehensive logistics solutions. Atlas Logistics adds real-time reporting to give customers visibility of their product and projects.
