DEFINITIONS AND INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR ICC/FHWA
Motor Contract Carrier Authority
The ICC termination Act of 1995 defines contract carriage as truck transportation provided under a contract, but, effective January 1, 1996 it no distinguishes between
common or contract carriers. However the act specifies that carriers still must register as either common or contract carriers. If you are unsure of which authority to secure, you may check with potential shippers to see if they have a preference.
