UniGroup Relocation, formerly UniGroup Worldwide UTS, has launched its new global brand, reflecting a broader mission and the addition of new services and technology solutions. With regional headquarters in St. Louis, Mo., Amsterdam, and Hong Kong, the company’s global network services nearly 1,200 locations in more than 180 countries with mobility solutions. Built on the heritage of the largest and most recognized U.S. household goods movers, United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit, and the highly regarded presence of UTS International in the rest of the world, UniGroup Relocation has more than eight decades of experience meeting customers’ relocation needs.
“Over the last few years, we have been quietly building one of the world’s largest relocation networks,” said Pat Baehler, UniGroup Relocation president. “Our new brand is a reflection of our large global presence, our wide range of services and the consistent and high level of quality we are able to provide through our service level agreements and unsurpassed local knowledge.”
To better meet the broad range of mobility needs of multi-national corporations and their assignees, the company recently expanded its offerings to include pre-assignment, housing and destination services. These include everything from new location orientations, home finding, culture and language instruction, and departure services, all arranged through a single point of contact.
“A successful global assignment is about more than relocating employees. It is about helping employees and their families adjust to their new environment and feel comfortable in their surroundings throughout their assignment,” said Paul Bernardt, managing director UniGroup Relocation Network. “With our recent additions, we offer services that help an assignee through a successful assignment from beginning to end.”
“UniGroup Relocation’s new efforts are already beginning to yield results. We have recently added multiple new network members and have won the business of major new multi-national accounts,” Baehler said. “We are looking forward to sharing our capabilities with more corporations and continuing to add members to our global network.”
