Preston, MD - January 7, 2020, Choptank Transport, a third-party logistics provider headquartered in Preston, Maryland, is pleased to announce the promotion of Josh Bergling to Vice President of Technology.
"As our business and industry evolve, so does the need for robust technology solutions," said Geoff Turner, president and CEO at Choptank Transport. "In his new role, Josh will oversee both the IT department and the business intelligence team whose combined efforts include designing, building, maintaining and supporting the critical IT initiatives that help our employees, customers and carriers. Josh has proven to be a tremendous asset in this capacity and I am confident in his ability to manage all aspects of Choptank's IT roadmap."
Bergling joined Choptank in 2013 after graduating from Salisbury University with a Bachelor of Science degree in information systems. In the seven years at Choptank, Bergling and his team have migrated the sales staff from a well-known CRM system to an in-house, customized and proprietary CRM, developed from the ground up and tailored specifically to the company's needs.
More recently, Bergling has been immersed in a new project. He and his team have been developing a multifunctional customer portal for shippers called Orbit TI (the "TI" stands for transportation intelligence). The game-changing software platform provides full visibility into every shipment along with in-depth market intelligence, in an easy-to-navigate interface. The go-live date for Orbit TI will be later this month.
Bergling says he looks forward to his new role. "Over the past five years we've seen unprecedented investment in technology, putting an end to antiquated processes and creating supply chain efficiency. Tracking, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and blockchain are just a handful of technologies revolutionizing the industry. It's exciting to be part of such rapid change in not only how we do business, but how we think of logistics."
