Not long ago I was like everyone else outside of the trucking industry and never considered the issues truck drivers face on a daily basis.
This Blog was created to help people outside of the trucking industry understand those issues which affect truck drivers on a day to day basis. My goal is to enhance the awareness of the general public regarding these issues, thereby creating a bit more respect for truckers who are realistically backbone of our economy!
As part of the new Unified Registration System (URS) the
FMCA is going to be phasing out MC Authority Numbers.The exact date to begin is still “Up in the
Air” but originally it was supposed to happen on October 23, 2015.
A lot of truckers still don’t know this is going to happen and
are surprised when I tell them about it taking place.From what I gather all MC, MX and FF Numbers
will be affected by the ruling, in place of the Numbers carriers, brokers, etc.
will be given USDOT numbers.How will
this affect you as a carrier or broker?
