Check out our free guide that goes through each step of starting your own trucking company! It lists what you need to get your new company started and more. If you are ready take the next step, you may need to do these things before you even get your first truck on the road:

Obtain Your USDOT Number

If your company is planning on hauling goods on a for-hire basis in interstate commerce, you must be registered with the FMCSA and have a USDOT Number.

Get Your Operating Authority (MC Number)

Your MC Number is tied to your USDOT number, and it’s an important part of getting your motor carrier authority. The FMCSA requires a $300 filing fee to get your authority and you may need to register under the Unified Registration System (URS).

Pass a New Entrant Safety Audit

Once you start your new trucking company, you must pass a New Entrant Safety Audit within the first 12 months of starting your company. This audit verifies with the FMCSA that your company is properly following safety regulations. Progressive Reporting offers a DOT Audit Assistance Package that makes this step easy.

Working with Progressive for over the last 10 years has been great for our business. We are able to call and get a live person who is an expert in the area where we need assistance. That has helped us make good business decisions. The service is prompt and they are usually able to get complicated things handled quickly.

We want to say thank you for all the help you have given us over the last 8 years. You have helped us with our licensing, registration and permitting, which are complicated tasks we don’t have the time to dedicate to. Taking those tasks off our plate has allowed us to focus on growth, which is one of the reasons we have been able to grow from 1 truck to over 50 in less than 8 years.

We had an issue with our US DOT number that we tried to fix ourselves. After weeks of frustration and getting nowhere, we made one call to Progressive Reporting and the problem was solved within 2 hours. Now we have Progressive Reporting’s contact info in all of our trucks.
