Meet Rhonda Hartman

“As truck drivers, we are unique because we are able to see everything around us.”

PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVER, OLD DOMINION FREIGHT LINE

  • WHEN DID YOU ENTER INTO THE BUSINESS?

    When I first started in the trucking industry in the early 80s, I was one of the few women behind the wheel of a truck.

  • WHAT UNIQUELY SETS TRUCK DRIVERS APART FROM OTHER DRIVERS ON THE ROAD?

    As truck drivers, we are the eyes and ears on the road. There are over 3 million drivers on America’s roads: we’re all over the nation. We can see things that the public and even law enforcement cannot. Truck drivers are often overlooked because people are so used to seeing trucks on the road, but since we’re always paying attention and alert, we are able to see everything around us.

  • WHAT ARE SOME ACCOMPLISHMENTS YOU ARE PROUD OF?

    In 2017, I was named to American Trucking Associations (ATA)’s 2017-2018 America’s Road Team as one of the twenty truck drivers selected by ATA as an ambassador to represent the trucking industry.
