All FMCSA motor carriers, brokers, and freight forwarders are required to hire a blanket agent service to file a BOC 3 form with the FMCSA in order to gain and keep an active authority. A BOC 3 is also required in order to reinstate an MC or FF number that has been revoked. Failure to keep an updated BOC 3 form on file with the FMCSA can result in a deactivated USDOT number.
The BOC 3 (Designation of Process Agents) form is filed to the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) to designate a process agent in every state you are authorized to travel within the United States. Our agents are in place to accept service of process issued by any state on your behalf. Documents are always forwarded to you in a timely manner.
