Paul WoodChoptank Transport is proud to announce the appointment of Paul Wood as its new Director of Carrier Services.

Wood is no stranger to supply chain management and logistics. From 1992 to 2010 he worked at Tyson Foods in their warehouse and transportation division. While there, he held several managerial positions including: Fleet Manager, Load Planner, Sales Services, and Load Planner Manager.  Later, Wood was assigned as Project Manager for their newly acquired Tom McLeod Software, a well known transportation management platform.


In 2010, Wood joined McLeod Software first as an Implementation Manager and then as a Customer Advocate. In this role, he helped brokers and asset based customers utilize McLeod to help improve efficiencies and customer service.


Accepting the new position with Choptank Transport in January, Wood oversees carrier compliance and is responsible for strategic planning, carrier development and customer relations.


“We are glad to find someone of Paul’s caliber for the job,” said Steve Covey, Choptank’s Executive Vice President. “His job will allow greater visibility regarding available capacity in the marketplace – more time planning and less time reacting to customer demands and needs. It will also allow us to focus on the issues that our carriers face on a daily basis.  His role addresses our customer’s demand to provide only the highest quality capacity.”


Wood expressed enthusiasm about joining the Choptank Transport team. “I chose Choptank because of their great reputation in the Industry and their dedication to excellent customer service to shippers and carriers. “
