Mainfreight Transport - Motor Carrier Authority

Saturday, April 1st marks another milestone in Mainfreight’s now 45-year global history; we are proud to announce that we have officially received our Motor Carrier Authority in North America.Capture1-2.jpg

Operating under the strict guidelines of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMSCA), Mainfreight will be better aligned with how we operate and comply with federal regulations.
This change will place an emphasis on quality, customer service, and safety.

These are just a few examples of the regulations set forth under the watchful eye of the FMSCA.
This change was necessary to take the next step in our LTL journey in North America.  Although we have always been asset-based supported by our highly committed owner-driver fleet, our previous broker status has understandably been a barrier to entry with many fortune 1000 companies in North America; this is no longer the case.

Many customers understand the value and peace of mind in dealing directly with a true LTL motor carrier with compliance surrounding liability, safety, and insurance coverage. In keeping with our mantra of being easy to do business with, this change was a non-negotiable for Mainfreight. When dealing with Mainfreight you can rest assured that you are not dealing with a freight broker, you are dealing with an asset-based LTL motor carrier.
