Starting A Trucking Company?

Posted on May 16, 2011 at 11:25 PM Comments comments (0)






While you are in the process of lining up insurance and financial matters for your new trucking company, don't neglect the compliance requirements
 of DOT,  DMV, Motor Carrier, and the like.  Ensuring that you are licensed, titled and registered correctly with the above government organizations will allow you to operate your truck or fleet of trucks properly. 
 
Failure to know what is required on the DOT, DMV, and Motor Carrier side of compliances can cost you and your company big time.  Don't copy your friend's "way" of going through the licensing and registration process; because each state or jurisdiction may require something different.  Accordingly, there are different classifications of motor carriers and trucking companies; which requires different courses of action. 
 
The following are major areas that will be at the heart of your titling, registration and licensing matters for your trucking company:
 
  • DOT registration (DOT #)
  • Operating Authority  (Commodity Hauling)
  • The decision to lease onto a broker or not
  • The decision to apply for your own authority or not
  • IRP (International Registration Plan) compliance
  • IFTA (International Fuel Tax Agreement) compliance
  • HVUT (Heavy Vehicle Usage Tax) compliance
  • TWIC (Transportation Worker Identification Credential) compliance
  • Overload Permits
  • IFTA Fuel Purchase/Mileage Log Record-keeping
  • Fuel Tax Computation & Submission
  • Trip Permits
