Does Shipping at the End of Quarter Make You Nervous?

Director of National Accounts

Imagine that you manage a warehouse for an office supply company. It’s March 30, and you have several pallets of merchandise that MUST ship by the close of the fiscal quarter, or your company could risk missing critical deadlines. Talk about stressful!

At Old Dominion Freight Line (OD), we know that the end of the month and quarter close can be tough. You have goals to meet, products to get out all while navigating unexpected business demands or disruptions.

OD’s extensive nationwide network with more than 250 service centers has the capacity and workforce to handle shipping surges during those particularly busy times when pickups are time-sensitive — or when the end of the month or quarter is on the weekend.

Communication is key during surge times and our team is trained to ask and understand precisely what your company needs to meet your goal. Do you need the shipment to leave the dock by a specific time? Does a shipment need to arrive at its destination by a particular date to count toward your sales goal?

We ask these questions to help recommend the right level of service, customized to meet your obligations. And you can keep an eye on where shipments are anytime with our track and trace options.

We love telling our customers, “Yes, we can do that.”
