In more than 140 countries around the world Atlas World Group Inc. is a leader in transportation and relocation. In 1948, a group of entrepreneurs formed the cooperative called Atlas Van Lines, which has evolved into one of the largest Indiana private companies, and one of the most respected names in the transportation industry. The co-op now forms a network of more than 500 agents who have a commitment to the company’s three main values of integrity, quality and solutions.
Atlas World Group Inc. headquarters is located in Evansville, Indiana. Atlas Van Lines is the flagship company of Atlas World Group Inc., and it is also the second largest interstate motor carrier in the United States.

Most of the work the company performs is between states or countries in North America. In Canada, Atlas Van Lines is the most progressive and fastest-growing van line in the country.

In 2003, Atlas World Group Inc. wanted to show customers its softer side by introducing Sniffer the puppy as the new mascot. The point of adopting Sniffer from a local humane society was to demonstrate to customers that Atlas considers every member of the family and important part. It also shows that transportation and moving involves more than just objects, but people and lifestyles too. The current slogan with Sniffer the puppy is “Atlas is your best friend.”
Another effort to reach out to customers is the Atlas World Group Inc.’s interactive Web site. Price quotes, important information, policies and services are available to customers at the click of the mouse. Countless Indianapolis businesses and Indiana real estate buyers rely on Atlas World Group Inc. for their transportation and moving needs.
