Do you want to start your own trucking company?

Apex can help.

If you plan to operate as a for-hire carrier that hauls cargo across state lines, you will need a United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) number and motor carrier operating authority (MC number) from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Starting a trucking company and getting your USDOT and MC numbers can be complicated, but our Startup Program makes it fast and easy!

Getting Started with Apex

We help you form your business entity (LLC or Corporation) in your home state. Then, we complete and file all the paperwork for you. We also send you a Record Book with the important documents you need to run your trucking company.

Apex Capital is one of the few companies that forms your trucking company and applies for your operating authority (MC number) for you. Plus, after you get your authority you can factor your freight bills with Apex to get paid faster and keep your business running smoothly.

  • We make it simple!
  • One of our transportation specialists is with you every step of the way.
  • We save you time and make the process stress free.
  • We form your company and obtain operating authority for you.
