    Are you searching for a dynamic role that plays off your communication and problem-solving skills? Are you hunting for a stable company that offers growth opportunities and development?

     

    As a Carrier Sales Support Representative with Choptank, you'll be talking to lots of potential carriers and negotiating the movement of our customers' freight, while ensuring your carriers know they have your support for anything that might happen along the way. This is your time to let your critical thinking skills shine through. We're not a "one and done" environment, so you are on the front lines of building relationships with those carriers as well. You will also be working with our sales department as well as the rest of your logistics team, so an excellent work ethic and communication skills are key.

     

    Worried that you don't know anything about logistics? We will train you! Choptank has a state-of-the-art, award-winning training program crafted to make sure you have all the tools and knowledge you will need to be successful in your new career. (Positive attitude and coachability required)

     

    Choptank is a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider, meaning we bring companies who need to ship products and those with trucks together. Our customers want to focus on crafting and selling their products, not looking for trucks to move it and hoping they get a fair price for the shipping. We take that worry off their plate and get them the best deals in the market. We offer solutions and give them results.

    Responsibilities:

    • Provide outstanding customer service to your customers, carriers, and teammates.
    • Act as the middleman between all parties involved in the shipping process.
    • Market and sell loads to carriers via phone, follow up with them, and build relationships with them. You get the opportunity to chat with people all over the country and from all walks of life.
    • Negotiate rates with carriers to get your products shipped.
    • Work quickly to resolve problems that may develop on a load. This is your time to think outside of the box and be the hero.

    Benefits:

    • Casual working environment - When you're comfortable, you're more productive.
    • Get in at the beginning of something big - We have more than doubled in size in the last three years and will continue growing!
    • Competitive benefits package, including a wellness program, tuition reimbursement, and a student loan pay-down program.
    • Paid training and continual development. We see the value in investing in you.
    • 401K plan with a company match.
    • Growth and advancement potential - 95% of our managers are promoted from within.
    • Make a difference. Not only do we keep the business of America moving, but we also love to volunteer within the community. Last year alone we raised over 100K for local and national charities! 

    Requirements:

    • High School diploma required, but Bachelor's Degree preferred
    • Strong, professional written, and oral communication skills (you'll be communicating and representing the company through email and phone all day)
    • Computer skills, experience with Microsoft Office/Outlook or similar email application
    • Desire to work in a dynamic sales environment with goals
    • Outgoing personality and comfortable speaking to perfect strangers
