Choptank Transport, a third-party logistics company headquartered in Preston, Maryland, is pleased to announce the promotion of thirty employees in this year’s third quarter.
“We continue to be in hyper-growth mode,” said Geoff Turner, president and CEO at Choptank Transport. The amount of available market share in the 3PL space is considerable, so the opportunities for us to grow in this industry are tremendous. “
Turner goes on to explain that Choptank’s training program is a large part of how employees find their admiration and appreciation for the business. “We provide new hires with everything they need to know about logistics. The program gives them a clear path to follow so that they know how to achieve success. Employees who are ambitious and willing to go the extra mile are promoted and quickly advance in their careers.”
Carrier sales support representatives have to complete a comprehensive development plan before they are considered for advancement. The plan incorporates both instructor-led and e-learning classes. Customer sales representatives also have to go through an intensive development program to progress to the next level. It includes fifty-three e-lessons plus classroom time, which they have a year to complete.
“It’s been amazing to see so many develop and grow their potential. Those who consistently earn promotions are the future leaders of the company. I am proud of all of them; it isn’t easy. It takes hard work and dedication.”
The third quarter’s promotions include the company’s regional offices and run the gamut of departments from business intelligence to customer sales, to carrier sales, and accounting.
