UniGroup Celebrates Van Operator Appreciation Week

The Week Recognizes UniGroup's 6,000 Van Operators

May 8, 2014 - UniGroup is recognizing the service and celebrating the dedication of its more than 6,000 van operators during Van Operator Appreciation Week May 12-16. UniGroup is the parent company of Mayflower Transit and other transportation and logistics subsidiaries delivering full-service to do-it yourself moving as well as supply chain solutions across the United States and around the world.

“We understand our van operators sacrifice time spent with their own families for a life on the road. Yet, they always show compassion to the families they serve every day because they know moving can be a very stressful time,” said UniGroup President Rich McClure. “This week we have set aside time to express our appreciation for everything they do to provide exceptional service for each and every customer.”

Van operators passing through UniGroup’s headquarters in suburban St. Louis can participate in special activities, receive giveaways items, be treated to breakfast or lunch and much more. In addition to the headquarters’ activities, UniGroup agents across the country are hosting events of their own for the van operators in their agencies.
