** The new Unified Registration Date is TO BE DETERMINED**
Unified Registration System (URS) refers to an online platform for tracking all information about entities in the Transportation and Logistics Industries. This system will allow for registrations and information to be gathered on motor carriers in one specific system versus several different systems. All freight forwarders, freight brokers and motor carriers (including private and for-hire motor carriers of passengers and freight) under the jurisdiction of the FMCSA will be required to register with this platform. Historically, entities were able to obtain an MC number for the purposes of collecting and storing information. However, this new system eliminates all of the miscellaneous numbers and replaces them with a single, unchanging US DOT number.
Implementation of URS will require ALL Interstate Carriers (private and for-hire) to have the BOC-3 filing and Insurance filing(s) in place under their current US DOT Number (originally this was under the MC Number).
**New applicants will still need to apply for authority. The difference is it will be assigned ONLY under your USDOT number.**
