Adding MC/DOT Numbers & SaferWatch Monitoring


Adding your operating authority, such as a Motor Carrier and/or Department of Transportation number, will strengthen your uShip profile and provide assurances to any potential customers.

For service providers with MC numbers with either common or contact authority, uShip works with SaferWatch and their insurance monitoring partner, Assure Assist, to ensure accurate authority and safety information is imported from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). 

As a service provider, being monitored through SaferWatch will allow you to bid on brokered loads and Ritchie Bros shipments within the US. Brokers cannot be SaferWatch Monitored at this time.

To add your information, you'll need to edit your profile. Scroll down to Enter operating authority and other licenses.

  • If you're a broker, you'll see an option to enter in your broker MC# on the page.
  • If you're a carrier, select the Verify & Add option, enter in the corresponding number and then select Import. uShip will import your authority information directly from the FMCSA report and in most cases, call the phone number on file for the MC# to verify that you are authorized to use these credentials.
