DSC_0028Choptank Transport, a nationwide third-party logistics (3PL) company headquartered in Preston, Maryland, is pleased to announce its third expansion in eight years.

 

Incorporated in 2000, Choptank Transport first expanded its office space in 2007, adding 5,600 square feet on to the existing A.W. Sisk & Sons building.

 

In 2011, when many companies were still trying to recover from the recession of ‘08, business was booming at Choptank Transport -- so much so that the company once again needed to create even more office space to accommodate a growing customer base. This second expansion was much larger, adding 9,000 square feet, with 120 new sales and logistics seats. As freight and logistics outsourcing became a more popular and more practical solution for both large and small companies, it didn’t take long for Choptank to fill the building with new employees.

So, this spring, the company is breaking ground for an 11,000 square-foot addition that will mirror its 2011 counterpart. This will mean an additional 130 sales and logistics positions available in Preston, Maryland while the company’s outside offices also continue to grow. The company is already looking to fill positions and applicants can apply online here.   “My thanks go out to our phenomenal employees, customers and carriers that have made our growth possible,” says Geoff Turner, President and CEO, at Choptank Transport.   “I’d also like to acknowledge the willingness of state and local officials to assist in helping Choptank grow.”
