All Trucking Companies must be in compliance with all trucking-specific business licenses, permits, and forms.
There are two major levels of compliance that truckers have to be aware of, first, its at a federal level and second, its at a state level.
Truckers should be aware that in addition to the general federal and state requirements, there are taxes, licenses, and permit regulations that apply specifically to the trucking industry.
These additional requirements are mandated by the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), State Equalization Boards and various city or municipal agencies. Permit regulations that pertain to heavy or oversized loads are mandated by the state’s department of transportation (DOT).
Depending on the type of trucking business you plan to run, several important requirements may include:
In addition to these operational requirements, if you choose to employ private drivers, they’ll need to obtain special drivers permits or endorsements, such as a commercial driver’s license (CDL), to legally operate the commercial vehicles.
The U.S. DOT number is used to check the company’s safety records and compliance with regulations. The US DOT Number is overseen by The US Department of Transportation. US DOT implements the law while the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Authority (FMCSA) makes the law. FMCSA monitors and ensures compliance with regulations governing both safety (all carriers) and commerce (for-hire carriers). Companies may find they are subject to both registration requirements (USDOT Number and MC Number) or either one, separately.
Did you know the DOT is responsible for buses and airplanes too. Almost all transportation related stuff is regulated by the DOT. Transportation is a very important part of our lives. Safety is of the most important aspects of transportation. Keeping everyone safe on the road, in the air and on water is important.
