2012 UNIFIED CARRIER REGISTRATION
ALL MOTOR CARRIERS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Agreement was established by federal law to replace the Single State Registration System.
What companies are subject to the UCRA fees? The UCRA requires ALL interstate motor carriers required to register with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), including private, for hire and exempt carriers – as well as interstate brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies – to file and pay fees under this program.
What entities are not subject to the UCRA fees? Intrastate motor carriers are not subject to UCRA per se, unless a state that participates in UCRA elects to extend the requirements of UCRA to its intrastate carriers.
What equipment do I have to claim? ALL self propelled power unit fleets over 10,000 lbs GVWR, including power units, buses, and straight trucks must be registered. Registration in some states began on Oct. 1, 2011. All applications must be filed with the States before the enforcement date that is set to begin February 1, 2012. Compliance for this will be closely monitored by the authorities and will be accessible by roadside enforcement officials. Don’t delay register today!
