THOMASVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 20, 2017) — Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. veteran driver, Rhonda Hartman, was named to ATA's 2017-2018 America's Road Team.
Each year, the American Trucking Association (ATA) selects industry professionals who excel in categories from dedication to safety to their ability to communicate the industry's message.
Hartman joined Old Dominion in 2012 as a local pick-up and delivery (P&D) driver out of the Des Moines, Iowa service center. As a 34-year veteran in the trucking industry, she has been accident free during her time as a professional truck driver. She was a member of the Iowa Motor Truck Association's State Road Team in 2015. In her spare time, Hartman enjoys riding her Harley Road King.
David Congdon, vice chairman and CEO of Old Dominion Freight Line said, "Rhonda exemplifies dedication, passion and hard work. We're proud to have her on our team and representing Old Dominion on the 2017-2018 America's Road Team."
Hartman continues the Old Dominion legacy of strong leaders in the logistics industry. Verna Gillen, OD line haul driver, was the first woman to win the Indiana Truck Driving Championship in 2014 and Bill Hill placed second in the 5-Axle Van Class category at the National Truck Driving Championship, to name a few.
"There are 3.5 million safe, professional truck drivers on our nation's roads and every single one of them has a valuable story to tell. ATA is proud to select these respected drivers as the newest America's Road Team Captains and we are thankful that they will continue to tell their important stories throughout the country," said ATA President and CEO, Chris Spear.
The ATA named 20 industry professionals to America's Road Team. The captains will tour North America in ATA's Interstate One Image Truck.
