(Saginaw, MICH.) - For decades, Stevens Worldwide Van Lines has been a leader in providing moving services to America’s armed forces and is excited to announce a new chapter and approach to serving the Department of Defense moves.
Stevens has entered partnerships with Total Military Management, Inc. (TMM) and Tier One Relocation, the two largest Military Move Management firms, to manage the coordination of their Domestic Department of Defense business. Effective September 1, 2017, Stevens will turn over the management of this business line to these strategic Partners. Stevens will retain ownership of each of its Transportation Service Providers (TSP’s). The strategic decision to align with larger partners was made by Stevens’ Board of Directors and will allow Stevens to continue as a leader in providing quality driven corporate, consumer, and military relocation services.
“This partnership will provide increased opportunities for Stevens Van Lines and our agents, particularly in our off-peak season. Our corporate clients, agents and relocating customers will all benefit from enhanced service levels as a result of this new direction“, says Lindsay Stevens Eggers, President and Chief Operating Officer.
Tier One will retain the majority of Stevens’ move coordination staff and will utilize Stevens’ headquarters as a remote location for the newly transitioned team. Shawn Musselman, Stevens’ Manager of Government Traffic, will remain a leader on the Stevens Management team. Peg Wilken will continue in her role as Stevens’ Vice President of Risk, Safety and Claims.
