Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Service

Most interstate carriers are required to register and pay fees annually under the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement before operating. This is done by filing a UCR application with the state your company is based in. If your company is based in a non-UCR state, you’ll need to file with a neighboring state.


Our team can seamlessly handle your initial UCR registration and also have your annual UCR renewals submitted on time!
