Choptank Transport, a full-service freight transportation and management company based in Preston MD, announced that five of its employees recently completed and passed the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) Certified Transportation Broker (CTB) course. This is the highest accreditation in the industry.
These employees—Lloyd Thomas, sales manager; and logistics coordinators Matt Andrew, Mike Loetz, Andrew Harrington, and Mike Wheatley—are now part of an elite group of transportation industry specialists.
Developed by the TIA, the program is an intensive three-month course designed to expand the student’s basic knowledge of the brokerage and transportation industry as well as increase the professionalism and integrity of property brokerage. The four-hour final covers three sections: basic business principles applied to brokerage; traffic management and contracting for transportation services; and legal and regulatory issues. To become CTB-certified, each of the three sections must be passed.
This recent group of employees brought Choptank Transport its 45th CTB certificate. As part of Choptank Transport’s continuing education and training program, the CTB course is offered gratis to all qualifying employees.
