9.2 Long-Haul Carriers—Obtaining Operating Authority

This section identifies most of the common elements a carrier needs to obtain long-haul operating authority for transportation in the United States beyond the designated border municipalities and commercial zones. Additional information and forms may be needed. Carriers may obtain forms by calling FMCSA’s information line at 1-800-832-5660. The following links provide details on forms long-haul carriers need to complete to obtain operating authority.

Long-haul carriers must also pay an application filing fee in U.S. currency, provide proof of financial responsibility, and will be subject to a Safety Audit—called a Pre-Authorization Safety Audit (PASA)—conducted by FMCSA personnel, as well as ongoing performance monitoring.
