Registration Statistics - Custom Reports

The FMCSA collects registration data from large truck and bus companies that register for a USDOT number or update their company profile. This data is collected and stored by the FMCSA's Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS).

The data used in A&I Registration Statistics includes all active motor carrier companies with USDOT numbers registered as either interstate, intrastate hazardous materials, or intrastate non-hazardous materials. Users can create customized reports by choosing options from each of the tiles and advanced filters. The number of carriers with the selected characteristics is displayed, as well as their numbers of drivers and vehicles.
