“Old Dominion completed another outstanding year in 2013 with record financial performance for both the year and the fourth quarter. We were pleased with the double-digit increase in revenue for the fourth quarter, which was primarily driven by increased market share,” said David S. Congdon, president and CEO. “We were also pleased with the 19.6% increase in earnings per diluted share, particularly in light of the operational challenges and increased costs resulting from the significant winter weather and more restrictive hours-of-service regulations during the fourth quarter of 2013.”
