US DOT NUMBER
Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce have to be registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and must have a US DOT number. Commercial carriers who haul who haul intrastate hazardous materials requiring a safety permit must register for a US DOT number.
All the first-time carrier applicants applying for a US DOT number will automatically be enrolled in the FMCSA New Entrant Safety Assurance Program. This program requires new applicants to pass a safety audit and maintain roadside safety performance over an 18-month period before they are given a permanent registration status. Companies operating exclusively as brokers or freight forwarders do not need to obtain a US DOT number, in most cases.

We will take care of paperwork filing for you, so you have more time to focus on your business.
