Another Example of Why College Grads Should Consider a Career in Logistics.

Preston, MD– Choptank Transport announced today that Jacob Griffith has been selected as General Manager of the company’s Tampa, Florida, office.

Jacob Griffith

Griffith, a 2012 graduate of Susquehanna University, began his career in freight management at Choptank Transport, selling logistics and supply-chain solutions to shippers nationwide.

 

After several successful years in sales, Griffith was offered a position by the Colorado Boxed Beef Corporation, out of Auburndale, Florida. The allure of living in a state where the temperatures are warm and the sun is out all year-round was too much to turn down. Working from the shipper’s point of view gave Griffith a valuable new perspective on the supply-chain process.

 

“I am excited to come back to the company where I learned to love logistics,” said Griffith. “I was born and raised near Choptank’s headquarters so I know all the people in the corporate office, which is a real advantage. I am eager to help grow this arm of the business.”

 

Dave Regulski, Choptank’s vice president of business development, explains, “We have a strong growth initiative for our Tampa office in the coming years. Jacob is a perfect fit to lead this initiative given his extensive background in logistics and management.”
