Why Don’t LTL Companies Provide an Actual Delivery Date?

Is there a reason that none of the LTL companies we have contacted are willing to provide us with an actual delivery date for our shipment? You will find that for the most part, none of the LTL shippers in the industry are willing give out any type of exact delivery date. This is because your shipment may be transferred from one truck to another on the way to its final destination and it may have to sit for short periods of time waiting for the connecting truck.
