All new entrant Motor Carriers must submit an application package to obtain both a DOT Number and an MC Number.
After the initial application has been submitted, before the authority will be granted:
You must submit a Process Agent Filing. A process agent is a representative upon whom court papers may be served in any proceeding brought against a motor carrier, broker, or freight forwarder.
Your insurance company must file proof of liability and cargo insurance.
How Fast Can I Get My Own Authority?
Your requests for authority will be reviewed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and will be published as a preliminary grant almost immediately after we submit the electronic filing. The grant decision publication notices do not represent authority to operate. In the absence of opposition, authority will be issued within 20 days of date of publication provided the Process Agent filing has been submitted and your insurance company has filed proof of the required cargo and liability insurance.
How We Can Help.
We will file the application package for you electronically and obtain your DOT Number and MC Number and we will handle the Process Agent Filing. While the application is pending, we will keep you posted on the status of your application and check to confirm that your insurance has been recorded. We will also be available to help you in any way we can and answer any questions you might have during and after the application process.
How Much Will It Cost?
We will file the necessary application forms for you electronically for only $440.00. This includes the non-refundable filing fee of $300. It also includes the necessary Process Agent Filing. It does not include the cost of the cargo and liability insurance that you must obtain.
An Added Bonus
