USAL, the premier vehicle transportation and logistics provider, can help keep your trucks loaded and your car hauling business productive.

Below are three significant requirements to become a certified carrier for USAL.

1 — FMCSA-Verified, Safe Driving Skills

The USAL brand of auto transport companies insists on maintaining a safe driving culture. A carrier must maintain FMCSA scores that indicate a "Satisfactory" Safety Rating and Out of Service (OOS%) rates that are lower than the national average. Every carrier is evaluated independently by our Risk Management team; a carrier may potentially haul USAL freight on a probationary status until scores and/or ratings meet our standards.

2 — Certificate of Insurance

In addition to having safe-driving ratings, a carrier must have a U.S. DOT or state registration number, and the following insurance coverage:

  • Cargo - $250,000 (1-4 units) / $500,000 (5+ units)

  • Auto - $1,000,000

  • General Liability (each occurrence limit) - $1,000,000

  • Workers Compensation / Occupational Accident Insurance for Sole Drivers - $1,000,000

3 — Completed Application

A carrier must complete an application for certification. If your application to become a certified carrier is approved, you will receive information via email to help facilitate the setup of your payable account.
