Old Dominion Freight Line announced it anticipates hiring 800 truck drivers with Class A Commercial Driver’s Licenses 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 and tighter capacity.

By growing its workforce, Old Dominion can support increased demand to better serve customers while the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Current hiring plans include adding 275 line haul drivers, 260 pickup and delivery drivers, 100 team drivers, and more than 430 dock workers.

With current trends, Old Dominion anticipates that it will hire a total of 800 drivers in the next three months with a combination of new employees and by training current employees in the company’s truck driver training program.
