PRESTON, MDChoptank Transport is pleased to announce the introduction of its new refrigerated less-than-truckload freight division. The director of this division is local logistics veteran Wayne Hardee.

 

Geoff Turner, President/CEO of Choptank is pleased to have Hardee join the company. "For many years, our refrigerated shipping clients have trusted the results of our talented staff. This new service is a direct result of Choptank listening to the needs of our customers and delivering to them a service that will enhance the overall experience of all stakeholders. Wayne's strong knowledge of the supply chain and his unique ability to handle our customer’s needs make him an excellent choice for this new role."

 

Truckload shippers who have relied on Choptank’s reputation and outstanding service for more than 25 years often need these additional LTL services. In response to this growing demand, Choptank’s new division will roll out in late spring and include nationwide outbound delivery with a concentration of consolidation capabilities from Massachusetts to Virginia in Phase I. Phase II will include extended Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.

 

“The opportunity to lead this division has been a goal of mine for a long time. I look forward to the challenge,” says Hardee. “The need for quality refrigerated LTL services in today’s marketplace is in high demand and we anticipate that adding this service to our TL capabilities will make for a successful transition.”
