2015 Unified Carrier Registration is open

| 10/3/2014

The 2015 Unified Carrier Registration is now open and due. The fee schedule remains the same as that of 2014. Enforcement is slated to begin Jan. 1, 2015.

The UCR Agreement applies to the following types of operations of passenger and property in interstate commerce: motor carrier, motor private carrier, freight forwarder, broker, or leasing company.

All registrants are required to submit an annual filing of information required within the UCR Agreement. In many states, the penalty for failure to file is much higher than the fee, so motor carriers with trucks registered need to pay before the end of the year.

Fees remain the same. They are:

Number of trucks      Fee
0-2 trucks        $76
3-5 trucks        $227
6-20 trucks      $452
21-100 trucks  $1,576
101-1,000 trucks         $7,511
1,001 or more trucks   $73,346

Motor carriers can now register and pay for their Unified Carrier Registration using their smart phone 24/7, 365 days a year. This mobile version also allows enforcement officers to verify the registration on the road anytime, anywhere. It’s available through the UCR official depository located in Indiana.

To get the mobile app, simply visit Indiana’s UCR website while using a mobile device. The mobile version will automatically pop up. 

The following 41 states currently participate: Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

If your base state does not participate in the program, you are required to pay your UCR fee through a neighboring participating state.
