Old Dominion was founded in 1934 and SAIA was founded in 1924. SAIA had the jump on OD. Why did OD leave SAIA in the dust. Simple. Poor leadership and a lack of vision. TECHNOLOGY is the biggest reason why OD is the best in the business. SAIA failed and is continuing to fail. All you have to do is look at the antiquated handhelds. That’s just one example of being out of touch with technology. When you don’t reinvest in technology you fall behind. Just the way SAIA has done.
I also remember when OD was just a Flybynight, "no pun intended"
The outfit that owned PIE tried to buy OD at one time.
Hope Fly doesn't read this, he and his cronies will be on my case.
