Registration Statistics

A&I Registration Statistics provides data on registered large truck and bus companies to inform FMCSA’s safety-based decision making. Companies register with FMCSA for a USDOT number and are responsible for updating their information on a regular basis.

Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Snapshot Date: 4/30/2021

Motor Carrier Classification

Registered motor carriers provide information to FMCSA on their numbers of drivers and CMVs. This data includes active motor carrier companies with USDOT numbers registered as either interstate, intrastate hazardous materials, or intrastate non-hazardous materials.


Operation Classifications

Motor carriers register their operation classification as "for hire", "private", both for-hire and private, or some other classification. For-hire carriers are paid to transport property or passengers. Private carriers transport their own goods.


Registered motor carriers provide information on their total number of drivers and the number holding Commercial Driver Licenses (CDLs). Drivers must have a CDL to drive certain types of CMVs, or any vehicle designed to transport 16 or more passengers or certain types of hazardous materials.

Vehicles Operated

Motor carriers operate a variety of CMVs to transport goods and passengers. Straight trucks carry cargo in a body mounted to their chassis, and combination trucks pull cargo-carrying trailers behind a tractor. Passenger-carrying vehicles include motorcoaches and buses, which are vehicles used for long-distance passenger travel. Other vehicles include other passenger vehicles, such as limousines.
