THOMASVILLE, N.C. (May 11, 2015)— Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. has been named to Forbes magazine's "Best Employers 2015" list.

"We are always honored to receive recognition, but particularly so when our employees say Old Dominion, for them, is among the best employers in our country," said David Congdon, Old Dominion's President and CEO.

Employees were asked anonymously through several online panels if they’d recommend their employer, or any other employers in their industry, to a potential employee, Forbes said.
