Failing to update an MCS-150 form carries big-time consequences. Your company could face a  $1,000.00 per day fine. (This FMCSA fine can go up to $10,000.00.) This penalty will happen even if your company’s information remains the same after two years. But that’s not all.

They can feature an MCS-150 update plus any other type of DOT service. We never rest until every customer has compliance with US law.

A USDOT Number & MCS-150 Form Will Help Your Company Maintain Compliance

USDOT Number registration matters. The number is the US government’s go-to identifier for your business. Do you want to secure a USDOT number? If so, you must file the MCS-150 registration form. It’s part of the FMCSA Motor Carrier Identification Report.

The MCS-150 displays certain information about motor carrier operations. Without it, the FMCSA cannot access certain details about a business’ key processes. This is why the FMCSA has organizations update MCS-150 information every two years. It’s part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations official policy. 

In years past, say a company secured a USDOT number, there wasn’t the need to update. But USDOT and FMCSA policies have shifted. The FMCSA now uses a different standard of the safety measuring system. The system is harsh on transportation companies. Sending out wrong or outdated information leads to big-time trouble.

Companies can face all sorts of fines and severe US government penalties. This is why transportation businesses must take care of their USDOT compliance needs. And they are. Company after company across the US is turning to Moving Authority. Why? Because we help them process all types of trucking documents. And can we do so fast, without any errors?

What’s the FMCSA MCS-150 Filing Form?

The Motor Carrier Identification Report refers to the standard FMCSA MCS-150 form. It’s a document that transportation companies must file. Why? So that they can get or update a USDOT number. Once this takes place, the FMCSA will verify all DOT Number information. Is your company a US motor carrier using a DOT Number? If so, your team must file biennial MCS-150 updates. There are no exceptions. It’s an official US DOT motor carrier policy.

Can I Check the FMCSA Status of My MCS-150?

Yes, you can check on your company’s MCS-150 status using the FMCSA website. This is the best place for your transportation company to see current information. First, go to the SAFER System's Company Snapshot. You’ll see a link on the FMCSA website.

Then, can see when you need to update through the FMCSA online registration system. Your company must access this information by using your USDOT PIN. You cannot file the MCS-150 form without having your PIN. Do not panic if you cannot find your PIN. If that’s the case, contact the Moving Authority experts for help.

How Can My Company Update MCS-150 Registration?

DO you need to update your MCS-150 registration information? If so, try using the FMCSA online registration system. That is where you can input your USDOT PIN. Doing so will give you access to your company’s information. That is where you might receive a prompt to file your MCS-150 form. Are you struggling with this process? If so, you're not alone. A lot of transportation companies are. But do not despair. You can contact Moving Authority right now. Our team is ready to file all FMCSA paperwork for your business.

What Is the FMCSA & DOT Biennial Update?

Is the US government asking for you to submit a biennial update? If so, it needs Information about your DOT Number. You have to update this information every two years. (That’s what “biennial” refers to.) To update, all you do is file a brand-new FMCSA MCS-150 form. Otherwise, the government won’t have crucial information. That information applies to both your fleet and the business itself. Try to ensure that the information that you submit is recent. Plus, it has to contain 100 percent accuracy. If not, you risk getting fined with harsh FMCSA and DOT penalties.

When Should My Company File an MCS-150 Form?

Transportation companies file each MCS-150 FMCSA form on a two-year basis. Don't panic if you've lost track of which year you must file the form. Instead, start out by looking up your official DOT Number. Say that the second to last digit is odd. This means you must file an MCS-150 form in a year ending with an odd number. The exact concept applies to all even second-to-last DOT Numbers. Do you need to find out more about the process? You can call or message our experts at any moment.

Did You Know

Question Prior to the 20th century, freight was generally transported overland via trains and railroads. During this time, trains were essential, and they were highly efficient at moving large amounts of freight. But, they could only deliver that freight to urban centers for distribution by horse-drawn transport. Though there were several trucks throughout this time, they were used more as space for advertising that for actual utility. At this time, the use of range for trucks was quite challenging. The use of electric engines, lack of paved rural roads, and small load capacities limited trucks to most short-haul urban routes.

Question The Motor Carrier Act, passed by Congress in 1935, replace the code of competition. The authorization the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) place was to regulate the trucking industry. Since then the ICC has been long abolished, however, it did quite a lot during its time. Based on the recommendations given by the ICC, Congress enacted the first hours of services regulation in 1938. This limited driving hours of truck and bus drivers. In 1941, the ICC reported that inconsistent weight limitation imposed by the states cause problems to effective interstate truck commerce.

Question Beginning the the early 20th century, the 1920's saw several major advancements. There was improvement in rural roads which was significant for the time. The diesel engine, which are 25-40% more efficient than gas engines were also a major breakthrough. We also saw the standardization of truck and trailer sizes along with fifth wheel coupling systems. Additionally power assisted brakes and steering developed. By 1933, all states had some form of varying truck weight regulation.

Question In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

Question In 1999, The Simpsons episode Maximum Homerdrive aired. It featured Homer and Bart making a delivery for a truck driver named Red after he unexpectedly dies of 'food poisoning'.

Question During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture. Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they became negatively stigmatized. As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers were frequently portrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.

Question The Federal Bridge Law handles relations between the gross weight of the truck, the number of axles, and the spacing between them. This is how they determine is the truck can be on the Interstate Highway system. Each state gets to decide the maximum, under the Federal Bridge Law. They determine by vehicle in combination with axle weight on state and local roads

Question A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

Question Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These can be towed by a small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. They are built with the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.

Question As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

Question The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

Question A relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season. It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!


The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.
According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

Question In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

Question The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation. 

Question Throughout the United States, bypass routes are a special type of route most commonly used on an alternative routing of a highway around a town. Specifically when the main route of the highway goes through the town. Originally, these routes were designated as "truck routes" as a means to divert trucking traffic away from towns. However, this name was later changed by AASHTO in 1959 to what we now call a "bypass". Many "truck routes" continue to remain regardless that the mainline of the highway prohibits trucks.

Question Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

Question Heavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).

Question Many people are familiar with this type of moving, using truck rental services, or borrowing similar hardware, is known as DIY moving. Whoever is renting a truck or trailer large enough to carry their household goods may obtain moving equipment if necessary. Equipment may be items such as dollies, furniture pads, and cargo belts to protect furniture and to ease the moving process.
