Robert Zimmerman
Senior Vice President & General Manager of Operations
Robert Zimmerman joined Atlas in late 2007 as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Operations. He brings three decades of transportation experience to the company.
In his current role, Zimmerman is responsible for consolidating and uniting the company's two major operating units — the Relocation Services Group and the Specialized Transportation Group. His primary focus will be to utilize new and existing manpower, resources and technology in the two units to better serve Atlas' customers, agents and van operators.

Prior to joining Atlas, Zimmerman held various positions with Spector Freight Systems, Yellow Freight and, most recently, served as President and CEO of USF Holland.
Atlas - Atlas Operations "Cooking" with Reorganization, 1 Jan 2008 [cached]
Leading the effort was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Operations Bob Zimmerman. Before joining Atlas in 2007, Bob had held senior management positions with Yellow Transportation and USF Holland. His experience with these organizations informed his perspective as he assessed the potential for a reorganization of Atlas operations.
"We saw this as a way to help us improve performance all the way around," says Bob.
Working closely with Bob , and highly attuned to the project's ramifications , were long-time Atlas pros Dennie Lynn, Senior Vice President of Transportation, and Bill Travelstead, Vice President of Operations Support.
"It comes down to how we view our relationships with one another in the Atlas family," says Bob.
Bob, Dennie and Bill also covered the subject at length in a series of Van Operator and Safety meetings across the U.S. beginning in early February.
"Communication has been essential to our transition," says Bob.
