UCR - Truck Dispatcher Training


UCR stands for Unified Carrier Registration program. It is a federally-mandated system for registering operators of commercial vehicles who are involved in interstate and international travel.

📆This annual UCR filing must be renewed by December 31 each year.

4️⃣1️⃣ states participate in the UCR system, with most requiring all bypass providers to flag any carrier with an expired UCR and have them pulled into a weigh station or inspection site. If your base state does not participate, but your cargo-carrying commercial vehicle(s) cross state or international lines, you must still purchase a UCR. I will name the non-participants of the agreement: Arizona, Hawaii, Florida, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Wyoming, as well as Washington D.C.Congress created the UCR in 2005.

💰How are the UCR fees based?
For for-hire motor carriers transporting property or passengers and motor private carriers transporting property, the UCR fees are based only on the total number of commercial motor vehicles operated. The UCR fees for brokers, freight forwarders (those, that is, that do not operate motor vehicles – the UCR fees of those that do are based on fleet size), and leasing companies are levied at the smallest fee category. 76$- the lowest fee.
