Before a transportation company is approved regional operating authority, it is obligatory for them to file Form BOC-3 with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA obliges that a Process agent files the BOC-3 on behalf of a motor hauler. The FMCSA is an agency in the US Department of Transportation that controls the trucking industry in the United States. The primary mission is to lessen crashes, harms and mortalities involving large trucks and buses.Add paragraph text here.
Form BOC-3 gives motor carriers, agents and cargo forwarders, a legal right to manifest in any state where they do business. By filing the BOC-3, a trucking company labels the process agents that represent them in every state their trucks tow cargo. The designated process agent will accept court papers from the state on behalf of the trucking company, if ever there is a legal issue. The filing must be submitted to the FMCSA through the designated process agent registered with the FMCSA.
Motor haulers should also have a duplicate on file in each state where they conduct their business. By getting this, you can feel self-assured that you are compliant with FMCSA regulations. Your process agent will be able to handle the refiling to keep your information up-to-date, changes in name or address, authenticating that all provided information is correct on your forms.
All motor carriers are required to hire a process agent for each state in which they operate, including the states they pass through for clearance. Brokers and freight forwarders are required to employ a process agent in all the states where they have office and where they write agreements.
Those agents who provide countrywide coverage are normally referred to as blanket companies. You can also choose a blanket company to save time and eradicate the need to find individual agents for numerous states. Agents are easier to recruit than experienced executives and using a system of agents can be a cost-effective way of reaching a wide variety of markets. You can tailor it according to your needs and it will help you focus on more important matters of your business. Agents have local knowledge, and existing contacts, this local experience aids in better handling.
