Old Dominion's Security Divider Service provides guaranteed, locked-in security for nose-loaded special or uncrated non-containerized freight. Your freight is locked securely into place on a trailer at its origin, and is not unlocked until it reaches its final destination.
Security Divider Service is priced based on the origin, destination, weight, and trailer space used. Please see tariff ODFL 698 for details.
There are four ways to request Security Divider Service:
The steps involved in the Security Divider process are illustrated below.
The Shipper loads freight into the nose of a deck trailer.
A frame is placed on the trailer floor against the freight. This frame consists of two 2 x 6s and one 1 x 4.
Two pieces of 4 x 8 plywood or chip board are placed in the frame.
Two deck bars are dropped in front of the panels. The empty space can be filled with air bags.
A unique numbered seal will be locked in place on the deck bar.
Once the freight is delivered, the seal is removed with bolt cutters in the presence of the consignee.
