Motor Carrier Services
If you're tired of working for someone else and you're ready to start your own motor carrier business, you've come to the right place! An authorized Motor Carrier with operating authority can deal with shippers directly with no middle man, which means you make more money! Rather than deadhead, a motor carrier can work with shippers directly or legally accept loads from licensed freight brokers on the backhaul in exchange for a small fee.

Through DOTAuthority.com, you will be able to apply for your own interstate authority and process agents for all 48 continental states, find an insurance broker to satisfy the insurance requirements, secure your authority in just 3-4 weeks (trucking authority; passenger and household goods authority takes slightly longer), order our "Start a Trucking Company" start up kit. You can even sign up for our Professional Development Business and Safety Training Programs. For information, read below or call us TOLL FREE: (888)-414-1874.

Factoring

Once you're ready to start operating you may be in need of factoring. Factoring is basically the selling of a company's accounts receivable, at a discount, to a factor, who then assumes the credit risk of the account debtors and receives cash as the debtors settle their accounts. To learn more, click on the link below or just send an email to factoring@dotauthority.com and we'll have our factoring specialist contact you.

LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW FACTORING CAN HELP YOUR MOTOR CARRIER BUSINESS.


Obtaining Your Own Employment, Driving, and Criminal History

If you are an owner-operator, motor carriers will evaulate your driving history, your employment history, and possible your criminal history prior to contract or hire. An accurate account of your history is one of your more important assets in the hiring process. You can obtain the same information that your potential employers will see, correct incorrect information, and use it as a tool to get the job you want.
