An MC# (Interstate operating Authority) is required by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) for any motor vehicle or freight broker operating for hire and transporting freight or passengers across state lines. If you are operating (for-hire) outside the state your business is located then you need an MC operating Authority.
The average time frame for acquiring an MC Authority will be about 3 weeks. As part of the Authority process you will all be required to have in place all the following: Process Agents BOC-3, UCR (Unified Carrier Registration), and adequate Insurance requirements filed by your insurance company.
Once you are approved, New Interstate carriers must pass a Safety Audit within first 18 months of beginning operations. We can assist you with adhering to all the requirements needed to ensure you will always be in complete DOT Compliance.
