PRESTON, MD – July 18, 2019. Zachary Bee is a rising senior at University of Maryland’s College Park campus and has been selected as the recipient of the Choptank Transport Business Scholarship for the academic year 2019-2020.

The scholarship, established in 2012, was created in hopes of furthering the education of undergraduate students who otherwise might not have the opportunity to attend college. The goal is to provide aid to business students interested in future employment, including but not limited to, transportation and third-party logistics. Freight brokerages, like Choptank, are part of a growing field that provides solutions between manufacturers and carriers.

Zach is majoring in finance and lives in Federalsburg, Maryland. Last week Zach was invited to visit Choptank Transport and take a tour of the Preston headquarters. After walking through the logistics and sales floors, Zach spent some time speaking with Choptank’s CFO, Marcia Wood, to learn more about the finance side of freight brokerage.

“Choptank Transport seems like a great company to work for,” said Bee after the tour. “Freight brokerage is interesting to me as a job. It was good to learn how the company operates in logistics and finance. I like the way the business model is set up, and Choptank’s hospitality certainly opened my eyes to a world of opportunity.”
