With almost thirteen years at Truckee-Tahoe Lumber, Josh ‘Chappy’ Chaplin has worked a variety of jobs before settling in to his current role as Dispatch Manager.
Previous jobs in yard customer service, receiving, load building, and contractor sales contributed to his expertise in his current job and he still steps in to these other roles when needed. As dispatch manager Chappy manages: drivers and load builders to ensure accurate, quality products are shipped to our customers; Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Companies delivery dispatch for proper routes and timing of deliveries, and our vehicle and forklift fleet which includes maintaining all aspects from purchasing to preventative maintenance.
He also maintains procedures from the California Air Resource Board and California Highway Patrol to keep the fleet and company compliant. He is CCDET certified and continues to train in other courses relating to fleet management. Out of all of his responsibilities, he feels the most important is ensuring that Hi5’s stay alive (if you know Chappy you’d understand :-).
Outside of work, Chappy enjoys time with his wife and son Sylys and fishing and hunting with friends.
