Some weeks ago, I presented a three part series entitled, Intrastate Operating Authority in Virginia. However, this segment focuses on Interstate Operating Authority.  Interstate Operating Authority is a structure that shows the type of transport that can be conducted, jurisdictions that the authority can be operated in and the overall type of business that can be operated by the operator.  Interstate Operating Authority entails the crossing of state lines and is mandated by federal law and in essence is a part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and DOT (Department of Transportation).  In obeserving Interstate Operating Authority, two areas will also will be addressed: A. Who is required to have Interstate Operating Authority? and B. What are Some of the Filing Requirements?
 
 
Who is Required to Have Interstate Operating Authority?
 
 
  • Common Carriers
  • Contract Carriers
  • Brokers (matching loads for trucking companies)
 
Please be advised that private carriers, and for-hire carriers with an exempt status, aren't required to have Interstate Operating Authority.
 
 
 
What are Some of the Filing Requirements?
 
Some of the filing requirements are: (A COMPILED LIST)
 
  • DOT number
  • MC number
  • Cargo Insurance
  • Surety Bond (if applicable)
  • BOC-3
