“Davidson County has been home to Old Dominion Freight Line’s corporate headquarters since 2000. Since that time, our business has grown tenfold, making ODFL the second-largest less-than-truckload carrier in the United States. Davidson County has provided a pro-business climate allowing our company and the OD Family of employees to grow through a low cost of living, favorable infrastructure, and a pipeline of talent in the region. Certainly, Davidson County’s success would not be possible without strong leadership at the local level.”
