Here are a few key points to consider when dealing with or starting a new authority motor carrier:

  5. Financial Planning: New authority motor carriers need to have a solid financial plan in place to cover expenses like fuel, maintenance, insurance premiums, and more. Proper financial management is crucial for the success of the business.
  6. Compliance and Audits: New carriers should be prepared for safety audits and compliance reviews by the FMCSA. Ensuring all records, documentation, and practices are in order will help avoid penalties or disruptions to operations.
