Why is LTL Freight Slow?

LTL freight can run slower than full truckload shipping. This is because the truck carries the cargo of several different shippers and therefore has to make numerous drop-offs and trade-offs. LTL shipping can also only be ground freight, so the driver can run into many delays, including auto accidents, bad weather or slow traffic.
