This award comes on the heels of a major investment in an extraordinary and specialized training and development program at Choptank. The company has provided employee training for years, but recently, it has it taken the process to a whole new level. A new department was created, solely devoted to the success and growth of the company’s employees, from accounting to sales to administration to operations. Everyone is included in continual learning.

“High-level training for employees is necessary to provide excellent customer service to both our shippers and carriers,” said Christina Parent, people development manager at Choptank. “Whether the employee is brand new or a seasoned expert in the industry, continual learning is key. Our investment in a learning management system (LMS) has made trainings faster and easier with the rapid growth of our company and changes within the transportation industry.”
