Solutions For New Fleets

Solutions For New Fleets

When you are ready to strike out on your own, NTCI can help get your business off the ground. Some of the services that we offer include:

  • Assistance obtaining your DOT number.
  • Assistance obtaining the interstate operating authority (MC number) necessary to run your business as a for-hire-carrier (delivery of freight for a fee or other compensation). Unlike the USDOT Number application process, a company may need to obtain multiple operating authorities to support its planned business operations. Operating Authority dictates the type of operation a company may run and the cargo it may carry.
  • Assistance meeting the financial responsibility requirements established by FMCSA that must be met before you can operate a commercial motor vehicle.
  • Assistance in passing the detailed safety audit (new entrant audit) that you will be required to go through within the first 12-18 months of your operations. Failing the audit or failing to submit to the audit, could result in your authority being revoked.
  • Implementing processes and documentation to maintain compliance with applicable regulations.
  • Comprehensive annual compliance services, including:
    • DOT driver qualification file retention and online access
    • Hours of service auditing (ELDs, paper logs or time cards to be submitted)
    • Driver record of duty status books
    • DOT helpline with access to DOT experts for emergencies
    • Assistance with new entrant safety audit preparation
