ContainerPort Group (CPG®), a top ten nation-wide drayage provider in the United States, is pleased to announce several key appointments, marking an expansion of its commercial team that will support the company’s strategic growth across every port and every rail.
To better serve its customers, CPG has aggressive strategic plans in place to accelerate its available capacity solutions by building a nationwide network, giving customers the ability to work with one carrier for all their capacity needs.

The expanded commercial and sales teams will be a significant component of the business and essential to achieving CPG’s goal of being the national drayage provider of choice for today’s biggest and best brands.
