Choptank Transport has announced the opening of two new office locations: in Tampa FL and Dallas TX.
The newest branch in Tampa will open November 1, 2013, and is headed by Scott Jarrett. He has worked at Choptank’s Preston MD headquarters since 2011, filling the managerial position of corporate recruiter and trainer.
“Growth into the Southeast—and in particular Florida—will allow us to deepen our relationships across all aspects of our logistics operation,” said Jarrett. “We also look forward to creating numerous sales-based career opportunities within the Tampa metro area by tapping into the wealth of great talent the area can provide.”
The Dallas office will open in December with Grant Lehman in the role of general manager. He is a graduate of Iowa State University and holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business. He was recruited out of college by CH Robinson for its Des Moines IA office. In 2006, he transferred to the Plano TX office, where he was promoted to key account manager/Midwest zone leader. In 2009, he was named strategic account manager.
“Dallas-Fort Worth is the fourth-largest market in the United States, while the state of Texas has a GDP similar to the countries of Australia and Spain,” said Lehman. “This makes it an ideal location for Choptank Transport to expand and open up shop—something we are very excited about.”
Choptank specializes in transportation management services that include truckload, refrigerated, frozen, LTL, van, flatbed, intermodal, and warehousing.
