Services for New Motor Carriers

Motor Carrier Number/Authority

To start your trucking business, you need a Motor Carrier Authority from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). TBS uses the same system to obtain your MC#/USDOT Number. During the 14-day protest period, TBS will establish your BOC-3 while you file for insurance. Check on your authority status here.

USDOT Compliance Services

Safety audits occur at any time after your USDOT Number is activated. While you wait for your USDOT Number, let us help you prepare for your audit. We give you the right resources to help you comply with federal regulations. Learn more about our startup compliance packages.

Licensing & Permitting

Each state has its own licensing and permitting requirements. TBS has the knowledge and experience to help you navigate through trucking permitting services across state lines. Visit our comprehensive services page to see how TBS can help.
