Old Dominion plans to add 800 drivers by summer

March 9, 2021

Old Dominion Freight Line (CCJ Top 250, No. 10) last week said it expects to hire 800 truck drivers over the next three months to accommodate business growth. The new job openings are in response to a strong economic recovery with robust freight demand, tighter capacity, and “Old Dominion’s continual investment in its workforce,” according to a statement from the company.

The Thomasville, North Carolina-based LTL carrier has more than 1,200 jobs open, including drivers, dock workers and clerical positions.
