What is an Operating Authority?

 

Operating Authority

Operating Authority is a motor carrier’s right to operate a commercial motor vehicle to transport goods/passengers for – hire. It is a business license for a motor carrier or broker. As a business owner, you need to comply with all federal and state regulations to run your business legally. Also, you need to comply with the financial responsibility (e.g., insurance), process agent designations, and MCS-150 completion (for USDOT Number).

 

 

FMCSA operating authority is also referred to as an “FF,” “MC” or “MX” number, depending on the type of authority. In contrast to the USDOT Number application process, a company may need to get multiple operating authorities to support its planned business operations. Operating Authority orders the type of operation a company may run and the cargo it may carry.

 

The Type of Authority is Very Important

The type(s) of Operating Authority will impact the type and level of insurance that FMCSA requires. Hence, carefully select only the type(s) of Operating Authority relevant to the business and read the instructions before filing. FMCSA does not refund application fees.
