Package #3 Will Secure Crucial Registration for Starting a Trucking Business

Trucking companies must complete FMCSA registration, per the US federal government. That’s where Moving Authority’s Package #3 comes into play. It will help your new trucking company secure everything you need. This way, you can open your new trucking business ASAP. No matter your state, we can help you get your business started.

As an owner-operator, you can’t afford to waste time struggling to file documents. That’s why new business after new business in every state turns to us. We have a reputation for helping any trucking company succeed. (Whether a new company or big-time truck company.) Read below to see the important FMCSA registration that Package #3 knocks out.

Start a Trucking Company With a US DOT Number

The FMCSA enforces that any trucking company must secure a US DOT Number when starting out. It does not matter which state you operate in. The number identifies every business when conducting investigations and audits. Plus, you’ll need to have a US DOT Number when standard inspections take place.

(This applies at both the state and federal level.) If you're starting a trucking business, a USDOT Number is a must-have. And Package #3 can secure that number for your business right now.

You Must Have an MC Number To Start a Trucking Business

Having an MC Number matters when you start a trucking company. MC stands for Motor Carrier Operating Authority. You might have to get more than one MC Number for your new business. That depends on the specifics of your trucking business operations. (Also take state laws into account.) We will provide your business with an MC Number ASAP, per Package #3.

Do You Need IRP Credentials & an IFTA Fuel Decal on a Truck?

IRP refers to the International Registration Plan. IFTA is an abbreviation of International Fuel Tax Agreement. Any trucking business providing services across more than one state needs these. The IFTA decal goes on every truck at your new trucking company. Package #3 will does not help a business secure IRP and IFTA decals.

But packages #4 and #5 will help your truck business get them. Speaking of other packages, let us know about your ELD tracking needs. Sometimes we can add ELD tracking services to our freight vehicle packages.

It is crucial that every carrier and driver get IFTA fuel tax registration. So why does having IFTA fuel tax registration help every driver? First of all, fuel tax registration ensures FMCSA and DOT compliance.

Plus, IFTA fuel tax registration helps carriers with factoring costs for tax season. The last thing you want to do is not report the right fuel tax information to the government. If you need to learn more about fuel taxes, call us at any time. Our mission is to ensure that customers follow all vehicle and fuel policies.

Is Starting a Trucking Company Profitable?

Yes, the trucking business is very profitable. At least, for the majority of owner operators. Even the average truck driver can learn to make a lot of money.

How Much Do Trucking Company Owners Make?

Many truck owner operators (and each driver) take home a lot of money. A trucking business can generate about $2,000 to $7,000+ each week. Meanwhile, a trucking business investor can profit about $500 to $3,000+.

(That’s on a per truck weekly basis.) Many factors affect how much trucking business owners profit. Average market rates and expense values vary each week for a business. The profit margin also depends on a trucking company owner’s type of operations. Do you have questions about how a vehicle driver can make more money? If so, call us at any time. Our mission is to help every truck driver make more money.

How Do I Start a Trucking Business With One Truck?

Do you want to create a trucking company using one truck at your business? If that’s what you want to start doing, it’s not uncommon. After all, the fewer trucks you have, the less liability you have. Here are some steps to consider doing at the beginning of forming a new business. First, start off by filling out trucking company forms. This way, your business can apply for trucking authority.

You can start securing truck liability insurance at a great rate. Then, with the right liability, you can lease or buy trucks for your trucking company. The next step is to choose trailer equipment that truck drivers need. The last step is to complete an IRP for your trucking business. That stands for International Registration Plan.

How Much Do Truck Loads Pay?

The freight rates for truckloads can change every day. So, let’s do a trucking business industry average. It’s about $1.25 to $3.75 for each mile a truck drives. Many different things can increase or decrease the payment total.
These include the weight, number of drops, and form of trailer or equipment. Each trucking company has to figure out fees, schedules, routes, and rates. Do not despair if you don't meet business goals fast. Keep working hard and you’ll start to see first-rate business results.

I purchased an excellent package from Moving Authority. Starting a Trucking Company package turned out to be the perfect product for me, as I had a couple of trucks and decided to take the next step and start my own company. The attention I received was exceptional, and they resolved everything very quickly.

Starting a Trucking Company was very simple. I called Moving Authority, and they helped me secure my FMCSA registration. Thankfully I made the transition from operator to owner. These guys are really professional.

Fredrick Wilmoth


I designed a whole trucking business plan for my new company, but still, I needed some expert advice, just to make sure. Luckily I called Moving Authority, and they were willing to help me. I appreciate that indeed.

As we've learned the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 was crucial in the construction of the Interstate Highway System. Described as an interconnected network of the controlled-access freeway. It also allowed larger trucks to travel at higher speeds through rural and urban areas alike. This act was also the first to allow the first federal largest gross vehicle weight limits for trucks, set at 73,208 pounds (33,207 kg). The very same year, Malcolm McLean pioneered modern containerized intermodal shipping. This allowed for the more efficient transfer of cargo between truck, train, and ships.

The decade of the 70s saw the heyday of truck driving, and the dramatic rise in the popularity of "trucker culture". Truck drivers were romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws (and this stereotype persists even today). This was due in part to their use of citizens' band (CB) radio to relay information to each other regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. Plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and using CB slang were popular not just with drivers but among the general public.

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet

Very light trucks. Popular in Europe and Asia, many mini-trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles, usually with monocoque bodies. Specialized designs with substantial frames such as the Italian Piaggio shown here are based upon Japanese designs (in this case by Daihatsu) and are popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities that often have very narrow alleyways. Regardless of the name, these small trucks serve a wide range of uses. In Japan, they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break on taxes for buying a smaller and less-powerful vehicle (currently, the engine is limited to 660 ccs {0.66L} displacement). These vehicles are used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. These Japanese-made mini trucks that were manufactured for on-road use are competing with off-road ATVs in the United States, and import regulations require that these mini trucks have a 25 mph (40 km/h) speed governor as they are classified as low-speed vehicles. These vehicles have found uses in construction, large campuses (government, university, and industrial), agriculture, cattle ranches, amusement parks, and replacements for golf carts.Major mini truck manufacturers and their brands: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar, Suzuki Carry   As with many things in Europe and Asia, the illusion of delicacy and proper manners always seems to attract tourists.

In 1971, author and director Steven Spielberg, debuted his first feature length film. His made-for-tv film, Duel, portrayed a truck driver as an anonymous stalker. Apparently there seems to be a trend in the 70's to negatively stigmatize truck drivers.

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

Invented in 1890, the diesel engine was not an invention that became well known in popular culture. It was not until the 1930's for the United States to express further interest for diesel engines to be accepted. Gasoline engines were still in use on heavy trucks in the 1970's, while in Europe they had been entirely replaced two decades earlier.

As most people have experienced, moving does involve having the appropriate materials. Some materials you might find at home or may be more resourceful to save money while others may choose to pay for everything. Either way materials such as boxes, paper, tape, and bubble wrap with which to pack box-able and/or protect fragile household goods. It is also used to consolidate the carrying and stacking on moving day. Self-service moving companies offer another viable option. It involves the person moving buying a space on one or more trailers or shipping containers. These containers are then professionally driven to the new location.

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.

The moving industry in the United States was deregulated with the Household Goods Transportation Act of 1980. This act allowed interstate movers to issue binding or fixed estimates for the first time. Doing so opened the door to hundreds of new moving companies to enter the industry. This led to an increase in competition and soon movers were no longer competing on services but on price. As competition drove prices lower and decreased what were already slim profit margins, "rogue" movers began hijacking personal property as part of a new scam. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces Federal consumer protection regulations related to the interstate shipment of household goods (i.e., household moves that cross State lines). FMCSA has held this responsibility since 1999, and the Department of Transportation has held this responsibility since 1995 (the Interstate Commerce Commission held this authority prior to its termination in 1995).

The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

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).

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is an influential association as an advocate for transportation. Setting important standards, they are responsible for publishing specifications, test protocols, and guidelines. All which are used in highway design and construction throughout the United States. Despite its name, the association represents more than solely highways. Alongside highways, they focus on air, rail, water, and public transportation as well.

Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations. FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

Logistics is generally the ability to organize and put in place many complex operations at a single time. It is the management of the flow of things to meet the needs of customers or corporations. Resources managed in logistics includes tangible items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, etc. Not to mention the items that are not tangible such as time and information. This means that the movement of physical items, such as in the moving industry, involves a clear understanding of solid workflow. Such logistics can involve the handling of necessary materials, producing, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

The 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day. He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers". Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

The 1980s were full of happening things, but in 1982 a Southern California truck driver gained short-lived fame. His name was Larry Walters, also known as "Lawn Chair Larry", for pulling a crazy stunt. He ascended to a height of 16,000 feet (4,900 m) by attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair, hence the name. Walters claims he only intended to remain floating near the ground and was shocked when his chair shot up at a rate of 1,000 feet (300 m) per minute. The inspiration for such a stunt Walters claims his poor eyesight for ruining his dreams to become an Air Force pilot.

In today's popular culture, recreational vehicles struggle to find their own niche. Travel trailers or mobile home with limited living facilities, or where people can camp or stay have been referred to as trailers. Previously, many would refer to such vehicles as towable trailers.

Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it. This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state
