Unified Carrier Registration Plan

The Unified Carrier Registration Act (UCRA) was instated as a replacement for the repealed Single State Registration System (SSRS). The objective of the UCR program is to unify and simplify the registration and monitoring process for all interstate and international motor carriers, brokers, leasing companies, and freight forwarder. 
The fee accompanied with this registration process is based on a tiered structure determined by the number of power units within a single fleet. This information is extracted electronically via the Department of Transportation (DOT) Database. 
In order to complete the filing process accurately all information listed within the DOT database must reflect the current standing of the applicable transportation company.
