Old Dominion | When is a run not a run?

So what happens when a run gets canceled all the time. Is the driver who took that run really out of luck until the next year? It seems crazy to me that a driver could literally have to find other work or whatever for 6 months if his run dried up.

I can't tell you how OD does it, but at FXF I get moved to the extra board in order of seniority if my run is canceled. Haven't had a night off since I got a bid, because of that. Don't they do it that way at OD?

They do at my terminal. I typically do better if my run gets canceled. Getting canceled is pretty rare though.
