Choptank is expanding and we're opening a brand NEW office this summer in Downtown Baltimore!

Are you hunting for a stable company that offers growth opportunities and professional development? Choptank can make that happen. Do you have at least one year prior experience working for a freight broker?
As an Account Executive with Choptank, you will be on the front lines of assisting customers get their valuable products shipped from point A to point B. You will be prospecting leads, cold-calling on prospective accounts via phone, building relationships with your customers, and managing their accounts. Since you have prior 1-2 years of experience working in a freight brokerage, our award-winning training program will help you finesse the sales skills you already have and help you reach new levels. Your accounts won't be “one and done,” but rather long term associations that make a big impact on your customers’ bottom line.
Choptank is a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider, meaning we bring companies who need to ship products and those with trucks together.
