The New Unified Carrier Registration Agreement

The Unified Carrier Registration Agreement was enacted by Congress and is administered by participating states. Companies subject to this program must pay fees to travel into other states.

Any motor carrier that operates in interstate or international commerce is subject to UCR. Included are many businesses that were not subject to the old Single State Registration System-private carriers, exempt carriers, regulated carriers that did not travel into SSRS states, brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies. Carriers based in Canada and Mexico that operate in the United States are subject to UCR.

The program’s fees are based on the number of commercial motor vehicles owned or operated by your company (trailers are also counted as a commercial motor vehicle). Brokers, leasing companies, and freight forwarders pay a flat fee.

Not all states are currently participating in UCR. If the carrier, broker, leasing company, or freight forwarder are based in a non-participating state, they must register in a nearby participating state.
