Most carriers don’t get trucking authority because they love doing paperwork, but the truth is that there’s more to moving freight than just transporting loads. At DAT, our experts keep up-to-date on industry, state, and federal regulations on everything from air emissions quality to weight standards to make sure you stay compliant.
"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
"They took me by the hand an led me through all of the diffiult and confusing steps to ensure that I started off on the right food. I cannot say it any clearer than these folks know what it's all about."
- Gregg Knight, LTL Trucking
Trucking authority is governmental permission to get paid to haul freight. It is also called operating authority or motor carrier authority (MC authority) and it is necessary before you can start your own trucking company.
Having trucking authority means you can be your own boss. It’s an opportunity for career growth that gives you full independence and can also come with a significant pay increase if you run your business well. It’s true that trucking authority comes with a lot of responsibility, but if you stay organized you can grow your company over time — hiring your own drivers and getting multiple trucks.
