Billions of dollars worth of goods are transported across the country each year, creating a large amount of liabilities for truckers to carry within individual states and across state lines. In order to prove that they have sufficient liability insurance, truckers must follow certain filing requirements — which vary depending on the area they operate within. Federal and state transportation departments each have their own filing requirements, which can become confusing for commercial truckers who transport goods across multiple states.
In this article we will examine some of the basic requirements of commercial trucking filings. For a transportation company that operates across multiple state lines, hauls hazardous cargo or engages in for-hire trucking or for-hire passenger transportation, federal filing is typically mandatory. A BMCX filing is required if the company is insured by multiple providers instead of just one.
Transportation companies that do not cross state lines or participate in intrastate trucking practices are not required to have federal filings. A transportation company that hauls exempt commodities in one or more states is required to submit state filings on top of the federal requirements. Trucking companies that operate in only one state are required to submit a state filing for that state — if that state requires filing.
Commercial trucking companies can participate in the Uniform Carrier Registration UCR Plan which simplifies the process of paying multiple state fees by allowing them to submit their financial responsibility information and registration fee payment to a single state — typically the state they base their operations in.
Another way commercial truckers can simplify this process is through an interstate transportation liability program with their insurance provider.
