History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Old Dominion Freight Line page on 30 June 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. (NASDAQ: ODFL) is a less-than-truckload (LTL), company. It offers regional, inter-regional and national LTL service. In addition to its core LTL services, the company offers logistics services including ground and air expedited transportation, supply chain consulting, transportation management, truckload brokerage, container delivery and warehousing, as well as household moving services. It contracts with freight forwarding services throughout the world.

The company traces its origins to 1934 when Earl and Lillian Congdon founded the company with a single truck running between Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia.

After Earl Congdon died, Lillian Congdon assumed the presidency and was joined by sons Earl Jr. and Jack. In 1957, Old Dominion extended its operations to most major markets in North Carolina and southern Virginia. Five years later, the company relocated its headquarters to High Point, North Carolina, in 1962 and merged with Bottoms-Fiske trucking company.

Between 1969 and 1979, the company acquired a number of competing trucking lines. With the deregulation of the trucking industry in the 1980s, Old Dominion extended its service area into Florida, Tennessee and California and also started serving the major markets of Chicago and Dallas.

The company went public in 1991.

David Congdon, grandson of the company's founders, was named president and COO in 1997. Today, he serves as the company's Vice Chairman and CEO. His father, Earl Congdon Jr., is the company's executive chairman. Greg C. Gantt serves as President and Chief Operating Officer.

The company offers assembly and distribution services and LCL and FCL delivery services to and from all of North America, Central America, South America and the Far East.
