The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all for-hire interstate motor carriers to designate a process agent in every state they operate in by completing a BOC-3 form. Motor carriers cannot file this on their own; DOT process agents must file it for you. Your BOC-3 form must be on file with FMCSA before you will be granted authority to operate.
Let J. J. Keller help you get your BOC-3 form submitted and establish process agents in any state. Contact us at
BOC stands for "blanket of coverage", and it designates a person or an office to accept any legal papers on your behalf. You are required to have a designated person or office for each state you operate in before certain federal operating authorities can be granted.
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. Process agencies must employ or lease the services of individuals or entities within each state and be federally registered with the FMCSA in order to be able to grant a BOC-3.
