Transitioning to the role of owner-operator can feel stressful for many people. One of our key missions is to reduce your stress by taking care of your registration. Package #3 will secure you with a new MC Number, BOC-3, and US DOT registration. But that’s not all. It also takes care of UCR registration. (UCR stands for Unified Carrier Registration.)

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. But it is a very competitive business industry. Many truckers try to get involved in the business every year. Many of these truck business professionals fail. Do not despair.

But that’s not all we can do for a trucking company. We also help each trucking company find new business opportunities. Is your trucking company in need of revenue?

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 in 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.

Next, find a liability process agent for UCR registration. Once you do that, 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.

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 In the United States, the term 'full trailer' is used for a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term is slightly different in Europe, where a full trailer is known as an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.

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 “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

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 Another film released in 1975, White Line Fever, also involved truck drivers. It tells the story of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to take over his father's trucking business. But, he soon finds that corrupt shippers are trying to force him to carry illegal contraband. While endorsing another negative connotation towards the trucking industry, it does portray truck drivers with a certain wanderlust.


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. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles with monochrome bodies. Such specialized designs with such great frames such as the Italian Piaggio, based upon Japanese designs. In this case it was based upon Japanese designs made by Daihatsu. These are very popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities, which often have very narrow alleyways. Despite whatever name they are called, these very light trucks serve a wide variety of purposes.
Yet, in Japan they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break in taxes for buying a small and less-powerful vehicle. Currently, the engine is limited to 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles began being used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini trucks were manufactured for on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States. Import regulations require that the mini trucks have a 25 mph (40km/h) speed governor. Again, this is because they are low speed vehicles.
However, these vehicles have found numerous amounts of ways to help the community. They invest money into the government, universities, amusement parks, and replacements for golf cars. They have some major Japanese mini truck manufacturarers as well as brands such as: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishit Minicab, Subaru Sambar, and Suzuki Carry.

Question "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."

Question 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.

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!

Question “Writer-director James Mottern said he was influenced by nuanced, beloved movies of the 1970s such as "The Last Detail" and "Five Easy Pieces." Mottern said his female trucker character began with a woman he saw at a Southern California truck stop — a "beautiful woman, bleach blonde ... skin tanned to leather walked like a Teamster, blue eyes.” - Paul Brownfield


In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

Question The definition of business logistics can be difficult to understand. Logistics can be simply put as a means of management that plans, implements, and controls the efficiency of the business. The notion of business logistics incorporates all sectors of the industry. It is used as a means to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains, and resultant efficiency.

Question 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.

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 The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.


The term 'trailer' is commonly used interchangeably with that of a travel trailer or mobile home. There are varieties of trailers and manufactures housing designed for human habitation. Such origins can be found historically with utility trailers built in a similar fashion to horse-drawn wagons. A trailer park is an area where mobile homes are designated for people to live in.
In the United States, trailers ranging in size from single-axle dollies to 6-axle, 13 ft 6 in (4,115 mm) high, 53 ft (16,154 mm) in long semi-trailers is common. Although, when towed as part of a tractor-trailer or "18-wheeler", carries a large percentage of the freight. Specifically, the freight that travels over land in North America.

Question Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.

Question There are various versions of a moving scam, but it basically begins with a prospective client. Then the client starts to contact a moving company to request a cost estimate. In today's market, unfortunately, this often happens online or via phone calls. So essentially a customer is contacting them for a quote when the moving company may not have a license. These moving sales people are salesman prone to quoting sometimes low. Even though usually reasonable prices with no room for the movers to provide a quality service if it is a broker.

Question Tracing the origins of particular words can be quite different with so many words in the English Dictionary. Some say the word "truck" might have come from a back-formation of "truckle", meaning "small wheel" or "pulley". In turn, both sources emanate from the Greek trokhos (τροχός), meaning "wheel", from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").
