“The Old Dominion family of employees works hard to exceed the expectations of our customers on every shipment we are entrusted with each day, and this award is a testament to the promises we keep on behalf of our customers,” said Chip Overbey, Old Dominion’s senior vice president of strategic business development. “While it is always nice to be recognized for our hard work, Old Dominion’s efforts to keep delivering on that promise are never-ending.”
