All drivers who transport cargo over state lines with a commercial vehicle needs a UCR. UCR stands for the Unified Carrier Registration program, which is mandated by the U.S. government. In other words, you must have a UCR in order to be DOT compliant. The problem is, many individuals and companies don’t know where to begin if they need a UCR, so they merely decide to not get one at all. Save yourself the headache with DOT Unified Carrier Registration services from Federal Carrier. When you work with us, you’ll have a dedicated compliance agent on your side throughout the whole process. You’ll never be left on your own in the challenges of becoming DOT compliant.
You might be asking yourself, “my drivers already have their licenses; why do we need a UCR too?” Good question. Because it’s a federal Unified Carrier Registration program, you’re breaking the law if you’re not compliant. The consequences of not having a UCR include being fined either individually or as a company. You can consider a fine as your last warning. If you pay the fine and still neglect to obtain a UCR, your vehicles may be detained by law officials and your business can ultimately be shut down.
Although not every state participates in the UCR program currently, that doesn’t mean you don’t need one. For instance, if your state doesn’t participate in the program but you transport cargo in or through a state that does participate in the UCR program, you’re violating the law. Our DOT Unified Carrier Registration services will guarantee you’re compliant regardless of your service area.
