Atlas Van Lines welcomes Suddath Moving & Storage

Feb. 14, 2024
Suddath was a key Atlas Agent and stockholder partner from 1950 to 1981. Suddath’s return to the Atlas Agent family was a logical decision for both organizations given their symmetry and shared goals.

Atlas Van Lines, a moving company, recently announced that Suddath Moving & Storage is rejoining the Atlas Agent family. 

By adding Suddath Moving & Storage to its network, Atlas Van Lines will grow its footprint while sharing a common goal of providing high-quality service and care for customers. Through the partnership, Suddath will build on its current customer base while being supported by Atlas.

“Household goods continues to be a critical part of Suddath’s core business, and partnering with Atlas will help us accelerate our growth strategy, especially in the corporate, B2C, and military relocation segments,” Mike Brannigan, president and CEO of The Suddath Companies, said. “We are excited to pair Suddath with a van line that brings capability, quality, and flexibility to its Agent-centric business model.”

Atlas and Suddath have a long history together. Suddath was a key Atlas Agent and stockholder partner from 1950 to 1981. Suddath’s return to the Atlas Agent family was a logical decision for both organizations given their symmetry and shared goals. 

“Suddath coming home to Atlas brings two highly regarded brands back together in the moving industry and further positions Atlas as an industry-leading van line,” Jack Griffin, chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group, said. “Atlas offers Suddath flexibility and stability, while Suddath brings vast capabilities that directly align with Atlas’ daily operations and long-term vision. We are pleased to welcome Suddath back home and into our Agent family and remain committed to the highest level of success for our agents, professional van operators, customers, and employees.”
