Expedited On Demand Appointment & Emergency Shipping | Old Dominion

Old Dominion Freight Line has been in the shipping and freight business for over 80 years. As such, we've come to understand that some shipments or freight require the highest degree of handling and expediency. Therefore, we've designed and developed our OD Expedited: On Demand shipping service to handle shipments that are time critical or emergency shipments.

The Old Dominion On Demand shipping service offers a time-specific delivery for appointment or emergency shipments - within one hour of the pre-scheduled delivery time - or the freight charges revert to standard charges. Our OD Expedited On Demand Coordinators provide customized solutions for your time sensitive shipments. Whether your shipment requires same day, next day, or any day service by a specific time, Expedited On Demand will get it there ON TIME.

And, in the rare case that OD Expedited On Demand can't accommodate your request, we can provide shipping solutions via one of our carefully-selected, asset-based expedited carriers. In addition, we will coordinate the shipment door-to-door while you sleep!
