How Do CDNs Reduce Latency?

In terms of websites or general streaming services, how is latency reduced exactly?
I never could understand this. I mean I understand that they improve over-all performance but not how is this actually done. I am curious because I find that some sites work better then others depending on the CDN itself.

There are multiple streaming technologies deployed in the market all centred around reducing latency.

Common practices for CDNs to reduce latency:
route optimisation technology
Deploying multiple, smaller and more controlled CDNs simultaneously
Using more modern/efficient streaming formats/codecs

I am still new to the terms here so forgive me on this one, but is there something that is done where the stream is preloaded onto the cloud OR a device to reduce these issues as well? I am not sure if I am asking that right.
