Christopher Cartwright, of Suddath Relocation Systems, Named Van Operator of The Year

ST. LOUIS (March 13, 2020) – Christopher Cartwright from Suddath Relocation Systems, Minneapolis, Minnesota, was awarded United Van Lines’ Household Goods Van Operator of the Year Award for the west region. The award recognizes Cartwright’s outstanding performance in the areas of customer service and safety. United Van Lines Chairman Barry Vaughn and President and CEO Marc Rogers presented the award to Cartwright at the company’s recent conference in St. Louis.

In his 25 years in the industry, Cartwright has driven more than two million miles. Cartwright believes the reason for his success is he learns from his mistakes and he cares about his customers dearly. “Winning van operator of the year has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid going on the road with my dad,” said Cartwright. “This really is a dream come true.”

Cartwright resides in Blaine, Minneapolis. For a video of Cartwright, please visit United Van Lines’ YouTube site at:              

There are more than 4,300 drivers in the United Van Lines system, and Cartwright was one of three winners this year. The van operator of the year 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.
