    EVANSVILLE, IND. – (November 21, 2016) – Industry leading relocation company, Atlas® Van Lines, recognized five Specialized Transportation Group (STG) agents as recipients of the 2016 Specialized Transportation Group Quality Award.

    • Achieve combined booker and hauler revenue of at least $1,000,000 in Specialized Transportation business.

     “This honor is a direct reflection of the quality of agent personnel we are fortunate to work alongside,” said Jack Griffin, Vice Chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. “These agents embody our commitment to safety and represent agency excellence at the highest level.”
