MC / ICC/ DOCKET Number - Interstate Motor Carrier's Authority

 

Motor Carrier (either private or for hire) is a company that provides truck transportation. There are quite a few categories of authority among which 80% of our customers apply for

  • Motor Common Carrier of Property (except Household Goods) - requires primary liability and cargo insurance.

  • Motor Contract Carrier of Property (except Household Goods) - requires primary liability insurance.

 

Some believe that you will obtain your MC (Docket) and US DOT Numbers within a few hours and you will be ready to go. However, that is not true. You are required to purchase Primary Liability & Cargo insurance and notify your insurance agency to file your insurance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). From that moment, the activation process will take approximately 3-5 weeks and cannot be expedited in any way.
