Choptank Transport, a Preston, Maryland-based 3PL, has announced it is expanding its training and development department, promoting Christina Parent and Kaitlyn Mister to top training roles at the company.
Choptank employees must go through a seven-week onboarding process that involves going through a program that covers basic information about the industry, as well as detailed protocols, processes, and software training. The curriculum also covers important government regulatory changes.
Parent has been promoted to People Development Manager, a position that oversees the company-wide training and education programs. She joined Choptank in 2015 as part of sales, before later taking on a corporate trainer position.
Mister is taking on an in-house corporate trainer position after working as a logistics coordinator with Choptank since 2016. Her former position required finding qualified carriers to move freight for customers.
“With technology rapidly changing and new compliance regulations becoming mandatory, it is imperative that our training and development be at the highest level possible,” said Paul Wood, Choptank’s director of career development. “The new program gives our team members opportunities to launch and advance their careers while helping Choptank be a top broker that provides excellent customer service.”
