Choptank Transport, a third-party logistics company that specializes in truckload freight, has announced an 11,000 square-foot expansion of its Caroline County headquarters facility.
As part of the expansion, the company will incorporate large open spaces into the design of the building and add an additional 130 jobs. In addition, the company has also purchased a separate 4,000 square-foot building in the Town of Preston to accommodate the increase in employees. This marks the third expansion for Choptank in the last decade.
“We have been blessed with outstanding growth,” says Steve Covey, Executive Vice President at Choptank. “Our strategy has been and will continue to be our results driven culture. Our employees’ dedication and focus on exceeding customer expectations has allowed this growth. The new addition will allow for further investment into our culture through business intelligence and staff additions. Those additions will foster collaborative technologies that will allow us to successfully manage and grow in a logistics world that faces unprecedented requirements for over-the-road safety and cargo security.”
“The growth of a company with a nationwide footprint like Choptank is a tremendous asset to the Eastern Shore and the State of Maryland,” said Governor Larry Hogan, “Our administration is committed to helping businesses like Choptank – a business that is thriving and providing the citizens of our state with great jobs and more opportunity.”
Founded in 2000, Choptank Transport is nationally-recognized and has rapidly expanded during its time in Maryland. With six offices across country, the company serves the United States, Mexico, and Canada with its refrigerated and frozen transport, dry van, flatbed and intermodal services.
