Apply for authority as a broker — without the hassle.

DAT helps you handle your operating authority application so you can get to work quickly.
Applying for operating authority is the first step in becoming certified as a broker in interstate commerce. When you’re starting off your freight brokerage business, applying for authority can be a time-consuming and confusing process. To make it as simple as possible, DAT Authority helps new brokers handle their paperwork at each step of the way, for a smooth and successful application.

Meet your federal and state brokerage requirements.

Federal and state brokerage permits can vary. Fortunately, DAT Authority is here to straighten out the details.
After you’ve gotten operating authority for your brokerage business, you’ll need to get permits to broker freight across the country. Some states follow federal brokerage requirements, while other states require separate permits for conducting commerce. With DAT, you can rest assured we’ll help you secure any federal or state permits you need.

Find process agents in each state you operate in.

DAT helps you secure reliable process agents in every state where you’re doing business.
DAT Authority helps to connect you with process agents in case you face any legal challenges on the job. Process agents are a requirement for new brokerage businesses, and only they can file Form BOC-3 with the FMCSA. Brokers need to establish a process agent in every state where they’re operating.

"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."

- Chad Boblett - Boblett Brothers Trucking
