Question Hello ,
I am a young entrepreneur starting my own trucking company. I have one truck with a trailer and i was wondering do i just need my common carrier authority or do i need my broker authority aswell in order to book my truck for loads using a load board i found online? I was under the impression i just needed my common carrier authority and i can start booking loads? Please help?
Answer Nisi, you only need broker authority in the US if you are arranging transportation for a fee.
In other words you are the middleman between the shipper and the actual carrier. Common or Contract carrier authority is for carriers with trucks. I don't know the regulations in Canada.
