Why is it that LTL Trucking Companies Will Not Guarantee Delivery Dates?

We often get calls asking why LTL trucking companies will not guarantee delivery dates on shipments. We always answer this question by saying that they don’t offer guarantees because with this type of shipping, there is no way that they possibly could. If things go right your shipment could meet all of the right connections and reach its final destination on time or even early or it could end up sitting on a shipping dock waiting for the next truck that is going in the right direction.

None of the LTL trucking companies we use here at LTL Freight Shipping is willing to offer any kind of guaranteed delivery date, leaving you with no reason to complain because your shipment did not arrive as promised. Should you need this kind of service you are most likely going to have either pay for a full truck load or find a company that has a tuck headed exactly where your shipment is going.
