The UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) is a program that supplanted the Single State Registration System (SSRS). The UCR Program requires people and organizations that work business engine vehicles in interstate or global trade to enlist their business with a partaking state and pay a yearly expense dependent on the size of their armada. This incorporates ALL transporters private, absolved, or a recruit. Representatives, cargo forwarders, and letting organizations are likewise needed to enroll and pay an expense except if they additionally work as an engine transporter.

The cycle is exceptionally straightforward. Each organization is needed to pay its UCR Permits charge with a base express (the state where you dwell basically). In the event that your base state doesn’t take an interest in the program, you are needed to pay your UCR expense through a neighboring, partaking state. At present, the accompanying states are not partaking: Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Wyoming, and the District of Columbia.

Most domestic transporters are needed to enlist and pay expenses every year under the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement prior to working. This is finished by documenting a UCR Application with the express your organization is situated in. In the event that your organization is situated in a non-UCR state, you’ll have to record with a neighboring state.

All interstate, available property and traveler transporters, and absolved engine transporters working CMVs must enroll every year and pay a UCR charge dependent on the number of commercial engine vehicles they work in interstate trade. The expense is payable to the transporter’s base state.
