Why is LTL Freight Slow?

Why Is LTL Freight Slow? | FreightCenter

by Amernesa Kelmendi

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.

FreightCenter assists shippers by helping them determine freight class, find the best carrier for their needs and move their cargo at the best available rate. Our free freight quote tool provides shippers with instant access to freight rates from dozens of top freight carriers.
