IRS FORM 2290
USDOT NUMBER: The USDOT Number is assigned by the Department of Transportation that serves as a unique identifier when collecting and monitoring a motor carrier's safety information acquired during audits, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and inspections. Unlike the MC number, a DOT number can function on its own.
MC NUMBER: An operating authority is also referred to as an "MC," "FF," or "MX" number, depending on the type of authority that is granted. When applying for an MC number, you must also have a USDOT number assigned to you. In general, companies that do the following are required to have interstate Operating Authority (MC number) in addition to a DOT number:
· Transport passengers in interstate commerce (for a fee or other compensation, whether direct or indirect)
· Transport federally-regulated commodities owned by others or arranging for their transport, (for a fee or other compensation, in interstate commerce)
Your own Operating Authority is the first step to get your business started. NJ Truckers have helped hundreds of trucking companies get their own authority successfully. Keep in mind that while getting a DOT and MC number is quick; the MC number will not become active until all the FMCSA requirements are met. The activation of an MC number is of 21 days. Depending on the type of business, we can consult you on the applications, filings and permits your business has to go through – we offer all the services you need to get your business get going!

BOC-3 is a United States federal filling for all for-hire motor carriers and it must filed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration before an authority can be granted. BOC stands for “blanket of coverage” and it designates a process agent, a person or business in each of the 50 US stated to receive and forward legal documents.
We will be pleased to help your business with setting up your initial registration or with your UCR renewal. Let NJ Truckers Services Corp take care of these annual fees in an accurate and on time manner. UCR fees are based only on the total number of commercial motor vehicles operated; power units with over a gross weight of 10,000lbs must be registered. Trailers no longer count towards the fleet size.
Unified Carrier Registration refers to an agreement among the states set up by Congress governing the collection and distribution of registration information and UCR fees paid to states by motor carriers, private motor carriers, brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies pursuant to 49 U.S.C. Section 14504a. The fees collected support state motor carrier safety activities.
