Allied Van Lines Inc., one of the world’s largest moving companies and a subsidiary of SIRVA Inc., announced that Quality Move Management Inc. received two top awards at its U.S. Operations Conference held in Lombard, IL. The Canadian-based firm was named the 2010 Cross Border Agent of the Year, and also garnered the Outstanding Safety Achievement Award in the Large Agent Revenue group.
For the third year in a row, Quality Move Management earned the prestigious Allied Cross Border Agent of the Year award, which recognizes the agency with the highest volume of U.S.-Canada cross-border tonnage, among more than 400 Allied Van Lines agents in North America. Moving more than 1,400 shipments across the border in 2010, QMM achieved a quality score of 4.62 (out of a possible 5.0), placing them in the “Excellent” category of agents.
“Quality Move Management has really lived up to its name, by setting the standard for quality, along with quantity, for moves across international lines,” said Bill Lyon, Vice President and General Manager of Allied Van Lines. “It’s a true testament to the leadership of their organization to earn this major volume award three years in a row, not to mention how they’ve done so with safety as a top priority.”
“We are extremely proud of our team. We safely and successfully moved more than six million pounds across the border in 2010,” said Quality Move Management President & CEO Kevin St. George, who accepted the award. “So it is truly significant for us to be recognized as one of the best of the best for the third consecutive year.”
