With enrollment opening October 1, reduced fees under the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) program have been published, with fees even lower than originally proposed.

The fee change for 2023 and subsequent registration years was finalized on August 31. Instead of a fee reduction of approximately 27 percent for all fee brackets, as proposed, the final rule adopts an even greater fee reduction of approximately 31 percent for all fee brackets.

Fees for 2023

The UCR fee structure is a bracket system, with the per-carrier fees based on the number of vehicles the carrier operates. The new fees are as follows:

Number of power units0-23-56-2021-100101-1,0001,001 and above
Fees for 2023 and subsequent years$41$121$242$844$4,024$39,289

Who must file under UCR

Private property carriers, for-hire passenger, property, and exempt commodity carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies, and brokers engaged in interstate commerce are subject to annual registration under the UCR program. Carriers domiciled in Canada or Mexico operating in the United States are also subject to UCR registration.

Each registrant entity must submit an annual filing and be registered before operating in interstate commerce. The UCR filing period opens October 1 with registration fees due by December 31 each year.

Key to remember: The UCR enrollment period for 2023 begins October 1, 2022. To continue operating legally, carriers must register and pay the fee before January 1, 2023.
