Agents and the Industry

  • Amplifier
Earlier this year, two Atlas® Van Lines Agents were awarded high honors at the 2023 American Trucking Associations (ATA) Moving & Storage Conference Industry Awards held in Orlando, Florida. ACE Relocation Systems (0015) won the 2023 MSC Agent of the Year Service Excellence Award and Collins Brothers Moving Corporation (0573) received the MSC Fleet Safety Award.


Jack Griffin, Atlas® World Group Chairman and CEO, said, “In an industry that can be competitive and cause participants to overlook values like sustainability, corporate
social responsibility, or safety, these two ATA MSC wins by ACE Relocation Systems and Collins Brothers Moving Corporation are great reminders that our network of Agents is bold, independent, and visionary. The entire Atlas World Group family is lucky to have them!”

ACE Relocation Systems has been an Atlas® Agent since 1971 and is a leading national moving, warehousing, and distribution company. Larry Lammers, President and CEO at ACE Relocation Systems, said, “One reason we are so honored to receive this award is that it is recognition of our very intentional decisions and efforts as a company. Every day, we commit our resources to creating a better experience for our customers and employees and elevating our industry and communities. None of that would be possible without the amazing relationship we have with Atlas Van Lines.”

Collins Brothers Moving Corporation was awarded the 2023 MSC Fleet Safety Award, a category determined by ATA’s annual Fleet Safety Award Contest that recognizes the carrier with the best highway safety record. Steven Noake, Collins Brothers Moving Corporation Senior Vice President, said, “Bob Dawson, our Corporate Director of Safety & Quality, has created a safety culture that positively reflects in our Department of Transportation (DOT) Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) Scores. In addition, our Professional Van Operators are some of the best drivers in the industry. This is a tremendous honor for Collins Brothers Moving, our Professional Van Operators, and Bob Dawson.”

Ryan McConnell, Atlas Van Lines’ President and COO, commented, “Being a great moving company takes much more than moving belongings from point A to point B. It centers on a genuine interest for safety, compliance, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and other elements that, although done behind the scenes, affect the overall customer experience. Both ACE Relocation Systems and Collins Brothers Moving Corporation have made significant changes to their processes, and these two ATA MSC Award wins prove that their efforts were fruitful. I would like to congratulate both of these Atlas Agents on their awards and wish them many more to come!"
