USDOT Number Reactivation

Companies should pay close attention to USDOT Number reactivation policies. Why? So that they are always in good standing with the government. This will help prevent losses in revenue and profit margins. Reactivating a USDOT Number is a simple process. Please read below to learn how to do it.

How to Do USDOT Number Reactivation

Let’s begin with the first step of USDOT Number reactivation. You must assess what your USDOT Number status is at this moment. It’s easy to look up the status. All you need to do is go to the FMCSA SAFER Company Snapshot website. Once you log-in, the reactivation status might say one of the following two things. 1. Record Inactive. 2. Inactive USDOT Number per 49 CFR 390.19(b)(4). If #2 is at play, that means a biennial USDOT update has not gotten completed. Whether you see #1 or #2, it means that you must complete and submit a report. That report's known as the Motor Carrier Identification Report. The official form has its own name. It’s called Form MCS-150. Submitting that form will put you in position to reactivate your USDOT number.

You can find Form MCS-150 on the FMCSA website. The site lists directions about how to sign and submit the form. Never use a form that comes from another website. Why? Because the FMCSA updates its forms on a regular basis. You do not want to risk submitting an outdated form. The FMCSA has a reputation for rejecting the following three forms, if outdated. 1. The MCS-150 form. 2. The MCS-150B form. 3. The MCS-150C form.

Say that after the New Entrant revocation, you need to reactivate a USDOT Number. This also means that you should use the FMCSA website. But you will need to follow separate reactivation instructions that the FMCSA provides. These instructions are easy to find on the site. Has your operating authority gotten revoked? If so, you need to reinstate it ASAP. You can also do this through the FMCSA website. The key to doing so is having a clean USDOT Number record. This refers to a record that is up-to-date and active. Otherwise, processing delays could take place while requesting reinstatement. There is one other option for this process. You can also submit the MCS-150 form. But keep in mind that the form must go alongside a reinstatement request.

PIN Numbers For USDOT Number Reactivation

Knowing your PIN number can help you with USDOT Number reactivation. Say that the USDOT status reads: Inactive USDOT Number per 49 CFR 390.19(b)(4). This means that you should get ready to input your USDOT PIN. That is the fastest way to reactivate when receiving this message. Have you forgotten your PIN? Or, do you need a new one? Either way, you can request a new PIN on the FMCSA government website. Resetting a PIN number does not take much time. Plus, having one is crucial for reactivating your USDOT number.

Contacting the FMCSA About USDOT Number Reactivation

It’s okay to ask for help with your USDOT Number reactivation efforts. The FMCSA encourages people to contact them. Their employees will answer any questions about their USDOT status. (You can also contact our organization for USDOT Number reactivation help.) The FMCSA is available through these three channels of communication. 1. Phone. 2. Chat. 3. Email. The FMCSA website also features co-browse functionality. This means that an FMCSA rep can help walk you through the USDOT Number reactivation process.

Using Fax or Mail to Conduct USDOT Number Reactivation

USDOT Number reactivation processes can take place through fax or mail. All you have to do is mail or fax a completed MC-150 form. Make sure that the form's addressed to the FMCSA. There are two common situations in which faxing or mailing the form is ideal. 1. You need to reactivate the USDOT number due to having an incomplete biennial update. When it comes to this, you've got to make sure the processing is correct. You can do so by checking off the box with the following title: Biennial Update. You might also need to check off this box: Changes in the Reason for Filing. 2. You are reapplying for a USDOT Number because your status has gotten revoked. The most common status that gets rejected is the New Entrant status. If this is the case, you should go over to the Reason for Filing section. Next, check off the following box. Reapplication After Revocation of New Entrant.

Make sure that you double-check expiration dates before mailing/faxing forms. You don’t want to risk having to begin the reactivation process again from scratch. The USDOT and FMCSA are strict about not accepting expired forms. In fact, the rejection of all expired forms became an official FMCSA policy in 2018.

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 Receiving nation attention during the 1960's and 70's, songs and movies about truck driving were major hits. Finding solidarity, truck drivers participated in widespread strikes. Truck drivers from all over opposed the rising cost of fuel. Not to mention this is during the energy crises of 1873 and 1979. In 1980 the Motor Carrier Act drastically deregulated the trucking industry. Since then trucking has come to dominate the freight industry in the latter part of the 20th century. This coincided with what are now known as 'big-box' stores such as Target or Wal-Mart.

Question Alongside the many different trailers provided are motorcycle trailers. They are designed to haul motorcycles behind an automobile or truck. Depending on size and capability, some trailer may be able to carry several motorcycles or perhaps just one. They specifically designed this trailer to meet the needs of motorcyclists. They carry motorcycles, have ramps, and include tie-downs. There may be a utility trailer adapted permanently or occasionally to haul one or more motorcycles.

Question In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.

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.

Question A moving scam is a scam by a moving company in which the company provides an estimate, loads the goods, then states a much higher price to deliver the goods, effectively holding the goods as lien but does this without do a change of order or revised estimate.

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 A business route (occasionally city route) in the United States and Canada is a short special route connected to a parent numbered highway at its beginning, then routed through the central business district of a nearby city or town, and finally reconnecting with the same parent numbered highway again at its end.

Question In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

Question Without strong land use controls, buildings are too often built in town right along a bypass. This results with the conversion of it into an ordinary town road, resulting in the bypass becoming as congested as the local streets. On the contrary, a bypass is intended to avoid such local street congestion. Gas stations, shopping centers, along with various other businesses are often built alongside them. They are built in hopes of easing accessibility, while home are ideally avoided for noise reasons.

Question The United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry. It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike. However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department. The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation. In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion. He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportation be elevated to a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAA be folded or merged, if you will, into the DOT. Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideas regarding transportation, thus putting the DOT into place.


As the American Interstate Highway System began to expand in the 1950's, the trucking industry began to take over a large market share. That is, a large share of the transportation of goods throughout the country. Before this era, trains had been relied on to transport the bulk of the goods cross country or state to state. The Interstate Highway System was influential as it allows for merchandise to travel door to door with ease. Since then, truckload carriers have taken advantage of the interstate system, especially when performing a long distance move. Typically, they bring the merchandise from one distribution center of the country to another part of the country. The increase in truckload freight transportation has reduced the time it takes to transport the goods. Whether the freight was manufactured or produced for the different areas internationally, the time it takes to transport goods has decreased dramatically.

Question The basics of all trucks are not difficult, as they share common construction. They are generally made of chassis, a cab, an area for placing cargo or equipment, axles, suspension, road wheels, and engine and a drive train. Pneumatic, hydraulic, water, and electrical systems may also be present. Many also tow one or more trailers or semi-trailers, which also vary in multiple ways but are similar as well.

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 In 1893, the Office of Road Inquiry (ORI) was established as an organization. However, in 1905 the name was changed to the Office Public Records (OPR). The organization then went on to become a division of the United States Department of Agriculture. As seen throughout history, organizations seem incapable of maintaining permanent names. So, the organization's name was changed three more times, first in 1915 to the Bureau of Public Roads and again in 1939 to the Public Roads Administration (PRA). Yet again, the name was later shifted to the Federal Works Agency, although it was abolished in 1949. Finally, in 1949, the name reverted to the Bureau of Public Roads, falling under the Department of Commerce. With so many name changes, it can be difficult to keep up to date with such organizations. This is why it is most important to research and educate yourself on such matters.

Question By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight. When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers are largely unfamiliar with large trucks. As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler's numerous blind spots. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.

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 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).
