Discover why Choptank Transport was a silver winner of the Wellness at Work Award announced by Healthiest Maryland Businesses.

Choptank Transport is a silver winner of the Wellness at Work Award recently announced by Healthiest Maryland Businesses.

A statewide initiative, Healthiest Maryland Businesses is designed to create a culture of wellness in the workplace and is headed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

This year’s recipients will be recognized June 1, 2018, at the  ninth annual Worksite Health and Wellness Symposium at Martin’s West in Baltimore. The event will focus on acknowledging winners for their efforts to perpetuate a healthy work environment for businesses throughout Maryland.

“We are honored to receive this award,” said Pam Hutchinson, vice president of human resources. “We are in an industry that is fast-paced and sometimes stressful. The leadership team has made it a priority to provide employees with ways to improve their health and wellness while at work. Participation is encouraged in events such as smoking cessation classes, yoga classes, healthy cooking classes and biometric screening. We also provide bicycles on site and a quarter-mile walking track around the campus. We are the only company I know of that has its own ‘ChopOlympics’ competition every summer. It’s good for morale and a good way for employees to get a little exercise while having a great time with co-workers.”

Choptank Transport is a 3PL specializing in truckload and LTL services for refrigerated and dry freight, as well as flatbed shipping and intermodal transport. With access to more than 19,000 approved carriers, the company has grown into six nationwide locations with more than 301 employees.
