Unified Carrier Registration Program - If you operate a truck or bus in interstate or international commerce or if you offer services as a Freight Forwarder, Broker or Leasing Company and you make arrangements for the transportation of cargo and goods in interstate or international commerce there is a new federal law that applies to your business. The Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Program requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. This law includes private carriers. It also requires individuals and companies that provide freight forwarding, brokering or leasing services in interstate or international commerce to register their business and pay an annual fee of $39.00.
