"Some say it's simple to get your authority, and that you should save your money and do it yourself. Other people, including myself, are not sure where to even begin. I used a service provided by DAT to get my authority. It was important to me that it was done right the first time, by people who have done this before."

FMCSA authority is permission from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for brokers and carriers to ship or facilitate the transportation of goods across state lines. Brokers also need to apply for a freight forwarder (FF) number from the FMCSA, and both carriers and brokers will need to apply for a DOT number from the U.S. Department of Transportation, as well.
