A BOC-3 process agent is a form that must be filed with the federal government. It designates your agent of process in each state. The process agent is the person who can be served with papers if there is a proceeding filed against a motor carrier. The company must designate a process agent in each state where it hauls or does business.
Companies can also select a blanket agent to represent them as their process agent across every state. If you cross a number of state lines on a regular basis, then it makes sense to get this type of blanket of coverage agent.
A copy of the BOC-3 must be kept on file at the motor carrier. Motor carriers should also have a copy on file in each state where they do business.
The Benefits of BOC-3 Filing or Blanket of Coverage Filing Assistance
If you are not familiar with BOC-3 requirements, it can be confusing and even frustrating to get the form filled out accurately and in a timely fashion. You want to make sure all the information is correct to avoid incurring penalties from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. That’s why many motor carriers choose to enlist blanket and process agent company services to help them get their forms filed.
