Local logistics provider Choptank Transport is expanding its footprint in Maryland and adding more than a hundred new jobs on the eastern shore in Easton, Maryland.
The company is purchasing a new facility in Easton, which will provide additional space for its quickly growing workforce in the region. The new location in Talbot County will house more than 150 new employees with significant space for the company’s sales and operations teams.
Overall, Choptank plans to grow its nationwide business to more than 700 employees over the next five years, according to state officials. The company has several other locations across the country, including Baltimore, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, and Tampa.
“Choptank Transport has made itself a staple in the community and we are thrilled to see them expand and add new jobs once again on Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Kelly M. Schulz.
This is the second expansion Choptank Transport has announced in the past four months. The company previously reported a headquarters expansion and 45 new jobs in Preston, with financing assistance from the Maryland Department of Commerce and Caroline County. The state and county funding was used to purchase additional furniture and equipment, including a backup broadband internet infrastructure.
