Oluwaseun Osinowo of Hilldrup Named United Van Operator of The Year

ST. LOUIS (March 4, 2021) – Oluwaseun (Olu) Osinowo, of Hilldrup out of Stafford, Virginia, was awarded United Van Lines’ Household Goods Van Operator of the Year Award for the east region. The award recognizes Osinowo’s outstanding performance in the areas of customer service and safety. United Van Lines President and CEO Marc Rogers presented the award to Osinowo at the Company’s recent virtual Learning Conference held in early March. 

In his 25 years in the industry, Osinowo has driven more than 2 million miles. Osinowo believes the keys to success are preparation and making the customer feel comfortable early on. He treats every customer with the same level of respect as if he were moving his own goods. “My favorite part of the job is the independence and the sense of satisfaction we see in our customers,” Osinowo said. “The goal is to win over the customer and let them know the company on the trailer outside their home represents the best.”  

Osinowo resides in Raymond, Mississippi. For a video shadowing Osinowo, please visit United Van Lines’ YouTube site at: https://youtu.be/uDc8x0NQ06Y 

There are more than 4,000 drivers in the United Van Lines system, and Osinowo was one of three winners this year. The van operator of the year award began in the late 1970s to recognize the men and women who sacrifice so much for a life on the road and who help other families through one of the most stressful times in their lives.
