Motor Carrier Authority
Want to Start Your Own Trucking Company?
If you want to start your own trucking company, you may need to get your own Motor Carrier Authority. Motor Carrier Authority, also known as Interstate Trucking Authority, is required for trucking company owners that operate as for-hire motor carriers and transporting passengers or federally-regulated commodities in interstate commerce. At Motor Carrier HQ, we understand what matters most to your business is making a profit by staying on the road. However, valuable time is spent on paperwork – slowing down your business.
What Does Our Motor Carrier Authority Package Include?
Don’t let paperwork slow your new trucking company down! If you want to get your new trucking company on the road, get our motor carrier authority package, which includes:
- FMCSA Registration Fee – Every new trucking company has to pay a $300 fee to the FMCSA to register under the FMCSA.
- USDOT Number – A USDOT Number acts as a unique identification number for your company. Trucking companies generally need a USDOT Number if they are hauling for-hire and their vehicle weighs more than 10,001 lbs (whether it’s a GVWR, GCWR, GVW, or GCW).
- MC Number – Your Motor Carrier Number (also called operating authority) allows your company to operate according to the FMCSA’s regulations. This number is tied to your USDOT Number and is necessary to start your trucking company.
- BOC-3 – Only a process agent can file the BOC-3. Don’t worry about this one. We’ll do it for free as part of our complete package!
