What is BOC-3 Coverage?
BOC-3 stands for "blanket of coverage" as it assigns a person or business to provide trucking coverage in all 50 states.
All trucking businesses must file a BOC-3 form with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This form designates a person or an office to accept service of process, legal documents and other correspondence on your behalf in states you conduct business in and/or travel through. The process agents, also called trucking agents, are third-party companies with the ability to grant BOC-3 filings. You must submit a BOC-3 filing form to the FMCSA in order to complete your motor carrier authority.
