Compliance Brief: Understanding DOT Authority
Carrier registration goes well beyond registering with the FMCSA and obtaining a USDOT number. Some for-hire carriers are also required to have authority. States can also require carriers - even private carriers - to obtain authority to engage in intrastate transportation. Getting all the right boxes checked can be overwhelming.
During this webcast we'll discuss the different types of authority, who needs authority to operate, what's required to obtain authority, what else is required when a carrier is for-hire, and the consequences of not having the proper authorities in place.
In addition, we'll take a look at some other registration programs tied to authority, namely Unified Carrier Registration (UCR), the Unified Registration System (URS), and hazardous material registrations.
Join us for this informative and engaging webcast. Together, we’ll make sure that you stay on the straight and narrow.
