Old Dominion Launches OD Expo Trade Show Shipping


THOMASVILLE, North Carolina (July 5, 2011) – Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. today launched OD Expo Services, a customized offering for companies that ship booths and materials to trade shows and expos.


Old Dominion will perform the pickup and line haul while a partner will handle the final mile delivery to the convention center hosting the trade show. The new service is available through Old Dominion’s nationwide network of 213 service centers.


“Companies need a partner – one who will guarantee shipments from start to finish and promise a smooth and painless process,” said Marty Freeman, Old Dominion’s senior vice president of sales.


“OD Expo Services extends Old Dominion’s best-in-class offerings to the hectic, pressure-packed world of expos and conventions,” Freeman added. “Customers of OD Expo Services can expect to benefit from the same level of service we deliver, including our nearly 99 percent on-time delivery rate and our low claims ratio of 0.47 percent.”


Old Dominion provides online tracking and tracing, monitored shipments 24/7 and a seasoned, proactive team to serve customers for all shipments, including those using OD Expo Services. In addition, the new service can be coupled with Old Dominion’s expedited or security divider services.


OD-Expedited provides daily on-time deliveries, guaranteed deliveries within normal transit times and time-specific deliveries, including air service, tailored to customers needs.



Security Divider Service provides guaranteed, locked-in security for special or uncrated freight. With the service, customers’ freight is loaded into the nose of a trailer and locked securely into place at its origination point and remains locked until reaching its final destination.


Customers can place an OD Expo Services order through odfl4me.com, a secured website that allows customers to manage their Old Dominion accounts to control transactions, including scheduling pickups and real-time tracking.
