Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) Company Overview

Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) is a trucking company that primarily ships consumer goods. ODFL is the sixth largest less-than-truckload (LTL) firm in the U.S. based on revenue[1]. As a LTL shipper, Old Dominion consolidates freight from several customers in one trailer-load. Compared to truckload shippers who contract an entire trailer-load to a single client, LTL companies need broad networks of pickup and delivery service centers, as well as larger “breakbulk” facilities where shipments are consolidated and separated. Companies also need complex IT systems in order to track freight status information. The asset-intensive nature of the LTL business provides a barrier to entry for new firms. Besides its primary LTL business, Old Dominion also offers domestic and global expedited (shipments that need to move more quickly than normal service, usually at a higher cost) and logistical services.

As a transportation company, Old Dominion’s earnings are closely tied to the overall health of the economy. The firm maintains a diversified consumer base, with no client accounting for more than 2% of revenues, and limited exposure to the cyclical housing and automotive markets[1]. Another concern is rising fuel prices. Another challenge Old Dominion must contend with is the entry of shipping giants FedEx and UPS into the LTL business. These firms bring extensive resources and strong brand names into the LTL market.
